The president of the CNE reiterated that 55 of the 381 electoral centers enabled for this Sunday will be pilot centers, so the transmission of electronic voting results from these electoral centers will be reviewed.

Similarly, the president of the Electoral Power recalled that the only items needed to exercise the right to vote on December 6 are the laminated identification card and, due to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of a face mask.

On her side, the Rector Tania d’Amelio, interviewed by Unión Radio, emphasized that the software audit ends this Friday, with participation by more than 80% of the political organizations.

She explained that the machine’s screen won’t display all the options, but for the exercise will prompt you to select a name from the list. “It’s very easy, when you are in front of the voting machine it doesn’t take more than two seconds.”

The 381 voting centers enabled throughout the national territory will be guarded by the Republic Plan in charge of the Venezuelan Armed Forces (FANB), as is customary in Venezuelan elections for the last four decades.
