Election takes place in 181 foreign cities and more than 697 thousand voters are able to vote abroad
O Superior Electoral Court (TSE) reported around 1 pm this Sunday, 2, that the vote for president of the Republic had already been closed in at least 59 countries. This year, approximately 700,000 voters are eligible to vote abroad in one of the 181 registered cities. Whoever chooses to exercise their right can only vote for President of the Republic. The number of voters abroad represents an increase of 39.21% compared to 2018, when the last General Elections took place. Although the voting has already ended, the TSE informed that the official disclosure of the results will only take place from 17:00 in Brasilia, when the voting is closed across the country. However, he emphasizes that the results in each polling station can be checked by the voters themselves through the Ballot Box. According to the decision of the Plenary of December 2021, this year there was a standardization of voting times across the country, which indicates that all sections were opened at 8:00 am and will close at 5:00 pm Brasília time (DF), as long as there is no there are voters in the queue. States with a time zone different from the Brazilian capital will have to adapt to the measure, provided for in TSE Resolution No. 23,669, which deals with general acts of the electoral process. The polling stations in Rondônia, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Roraima opened an hour earlier, that is, at 7 am local time, as well as in some sections of the state of Amazonas. In Acre, voting started two hours in advance, at 6 am, and in Fernando de Noronha (PE) the sections opened one hour later than the Brasilia.
