CNE's director reports button in electronic ballot
Button will allow the selection of all the candidates of a single party or party coalition supporting the selected candidate for governor
A new modification to the voting system will soon be made. Next December 16 the electronic ballot will allow putting together voters' choices.
Depending on the constituency, voters will have to cast their ballots 3-6 times. In order to facilitate voting in bloc (all candidates from the same party), the National Electoral Council (CNE) will incorporate an additional button into the electronic ballot, thus enabling the selection of all the candidates of a single party or parties group supporting the selected candidate for governor by pressing a button just once.
In other words, rather than pressing the button three, four, or six times, voters will be just one step away from casting their votes.
By pressing the respective button, the automated voting machine will select all candidates to the legislative council and the allied governor.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
