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.
"Cocoa is to Venezuelans what wine is to the French," says Alejandro Prosperi, head of the Venezuelan Chamber of Cocoa, using this simile to express the paramount importance or the cocoa industry for the country. Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
