The replacement of electronic voting machines is a normal procedure for each election, and the Electoral Court already prepares thousands of spare equipment in advance that can be put into operation immediately.

As a last option, if the electronic ballot box cannot be replaced by another, it is possible to adopt manual voting, with paper ballots, in a canvas ballot box. So far, this has not been necessary in any polling station in the country, the TSE reported.
