Vacant seats in Brazil, Lula at 50% and Bolsonaro at 36% in the latest poll

seats open Brazil. The electronic elections opened around 8:00 a.m. (Brazilian time) in 5,570 cities in the country and 181 locations abroad, where about 156 million voters are expected.

Voting is compulsory for all citizens between the ages of 18 and 70. In addition to the next President of the Republic (39/month), federal and state deputies, senators and governors of the 26 states and the district of Brasilia are also elected, for over 29,200 candidates, with 1.8 million tellers at work.

The system is the majority system: to be elected, the candidate must receive more than 50% of the total votes, otherwise the election, scheduled for October 30th, will take place. The leader of the Brazilian left, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (Pt) comes into the presidential election with a chance of winning the election on the first ballot with 50% of the valid vote against 36% of its main rival, the right-wing president. Jair Bolsonaro (Pl), according to the latest Datafolha poll released yesterday, but we must remember the error rate of at least 2% and many other unknowns that polling intention polls have already uncovered in the past.

To avoid the “risk of political violence,” the Supreme Court (STF) has banned the carrying of guns, and 500,000 police units are working to ensure security across the country. One of the novelties of these elections is the standardization of voting times across the country. According to the Higher Electoral Tribunal (TSE), for the first time, all polling stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time according to Brasilia’s schedule, with calculation of results starting at 5 p.m. and expected before 8 p.m. The Armed Forces are conducting a parallel, real-time, random count of 385 urns. A novelty introduced by Bolsonaro, who is skeptical about the reliability of electronic seats, who he says is open to fraud and the risk of hacking. An initiative that political observers view with concern and suspicion for fear of possible surges in democracy. This is the country’s ninth parliamentary election since the end of the military dictatorship.
