On Monday, October 18, the National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela published on its website the official list of candidates who will participate in the regional and municipal elections to be held on November 21.
The candidate electoral list was published so that voters can become acquainted with the government positions that will be elected in each constituency.
The list of candidates can be accessed through this link on CNE’s main homepage.
Upon clicking on the link, one can select from dropdown lists the state, the municipality and the parish that one wishes to consult. After selecting state, municipality and parish, a list appears on the right hand side of the screen, where it is possible to choose the electoral district.
