To facilitate the location of the voter at his polling station, as usual, the lists of printed identity cards will be placed on the outer walls of polling stations, according to the identity card terminals, which contain the number of the polling station where they are entitled to vote, the page and line of the voting notebook.
After verifying their inclusion in those lists, the voter will enter the center and will begin its transit through the electoral horseshoe fulfilling the following steps:
1- The voter will deliver his document to the president of the polling station, who will instruct the operator to register the voter’s data in the system so that the system places his fingerprint on the machine and is validated. The voter will be consulted if he or she knows how to vote, and, if he declares that he does not know, the chairman will explain.
2- The voting machine will be activated when the voter is in front of it, he will exercise his right to vote by pressing the box where his candidate of preference appears and then he must press the word VOTE that will be at the end of the screen.
Subsequently, the voucher must be printed, which must be checked and folded.
3- Then you will go with the receipt to the safeguarding box, where the document will be deposited.
4- Finally, it will be directed with its certificate in hand to member «A» of table, who will locate it in the voting notebook so that it stamps its footprint and signature.
In these elections, as in the 21 congressional events held in Venezuela in the last 18 years, the constitutional right to vote is guaranteed to persons with disabilities and illiterate voters, who can fulfill the exercise of voting in the company of another person , who can only provide this assistance once. These cases must be notified to the reserve members, which must be recorded in the corresponding form.
