Venezuela’s National Electoral Council (CNE) activated a text messaging tool, using the number 2637, so that voters can verify if their information in the electoral registry is correct. This was announced by Roberto Picón, rector of the electoral authority, this Saturday, July 10. He explained that citizens will be able to verify their status by entering their identity card number, by means of a text message.
He added that people who need to change voting centers will be able to search for the closest place to their residence, until July 15, through the page http://cne.gob.ve/web/registro_electoral/centros_registro.php.
“The Electoral Registry will be cut off on July 15 and will be published on the CNE website on July 25. Only then will the movements of the special registration and update operation be reflected. Currently the CNE portal reflects the changes made until May 31,” he indicated in another message from his account on the social media network Twitter.
According to the election schedule for the mega-elections of November 21, on Friday June 9, the fourth week of activities of the Comprehensive Audit of the Automated Voting System (SAV) culminated, with the complete review of different modules related to the tabulation procedures of electoral results.
The spokespersons reported that the auditors have requested to review all the changes in the programs and applications that will be used in the elections for November 21, regardless of whether they were made after the completion of this comprehensive audit of the SAV, the CNE wrote on its Twitter account @cneesvzla.
