About the Electoral Process
How is the transparency of the electoral process guaranteed?
Measures guaranteeing the transparency of the electoral are various and effective; some of them are:
  • All matters relating to the Electoral Register, especially the automatic inclusion of electors, publication of the Register in public areas and the procedure dealing with challenges;
  • The faculty of the electors to propose and nominate candidates, among themselves;
  • The ethical, civic nature of the electoral campaign, where no candidate may campaign in his/her favour, nor may political, social or grass-roots organizations do so;
  • The strictest impartiality in the procedures of the electoral authorities, those appointed bearing in mind their irreproachable citizenship, their prestige and their ability;
  • The fact that before voting takes place, the electors and any other persons, including foreigners visiting the country if they should so wish, may participate by visually checking that the ballot boxes are empty before being sealed and, after voting has concluded, at the time of tallying the ballots cast, since both acts are public acts.


What document(s) must be presented by the electors in order to be able to exercise their right to vote?
To exercise their right to vote, electors present their Identity Card or Armed Forces Identity Document.

What happens if the elector does not appear on the Electoral Register on election day?
On election day, if an elector does not appear on the Electoral Register, the members of the Electoral Table check by means of the Identify Card or the Armed Forced Identity Document and by the testimony of any of the other electors present, that the person in question, residing at his address and having no legal impediment, may exercise his/her right to vote. Once this confirmation has taken place, and depending upon the results, the person is either registered or not in the Electoral Register.

In those cases when a minor reaches his/her sixteenth (16th) birthday and is able to exercise his/her right to vote, without having obtained his/her Identity Card, he/she may vote after presentation of the Minor’s Card.
