CNE starts voters registration process for the presidential elections

This Sunday the National Electoral Council (CNE) began the distribution of the machines for the special day of registration and updating of voter data, which began this Monday, March 18

The National Electoral Council (CNE) of Venezuela began to deploy machines throughout the country to open, starting this Monday, March 18, a voter registration process that will last until April 16, ahead of the presidential elections on July 28.

Through X, the strategic operational commander of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB), Domingo Hernández Lárez, reported the deployment of military personnel in Caracas and the 23 states of the country to protect the equipment that will be used in the registration of new voters.

“The FANB remains deployed in support of the CNE, in compliance with the electoral schedule, and is in the current phase of deploying the electoral machines and material that will soon be used in the registry,” the commander indicated on the social network.

Although the CNE has not provided information about the deployment, the state channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV) indicated that the entity’s regional offices will be open for seven hours, closing every day at 3:30 p.m. Venezuelan time (7:30 p.m. GMT).

The “special” operation to open the electoral roll, according to the CNE, will be held inside and outside Venezuela, but the regulations that will govern abroad or in which countries registration will be enabled are still unknown.

Nearly three million Venezuelans over 18 years of age are not on the electoral register, which prevents them from voting in the presidential elections, which is why they have asked the CNE to promote registration in the census and the opening of thousands of centers for this task.
