In the selection of Governors for the 23 states of the country, 18,094,065 voters enrolled in the Electoral Register will be able to participate.

The audits will continue with the voting machine software, which will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the participation of the technical representatives of the organizations for political purposes that participate in these elections.

As it will be remembered, this audit has as objectives to verify that the programming of the voting machine corresponds to the function that must be fulfilled on the day of the election, at the moment in which the elector proceeds to exercise his right to vote, and that the machine reflects the will of the elector; as well as to demonstrate that the evaluations and verifications carried out can not be changed and that the applications reviewed and verified in the audit are the same that will be used in all the machines that will be used in the elections.
