After 47 days of electoral propaganda taking to the streets of the country, the deadline for candidates and political parties to distribute campaign material in order to try to win the vote of the voter ends at 22:00 today (1st).
According to the legislation, after this time, it constitutes an electoral crime not only to hand over any material alluding to the candidacy, but also to carry out motorcades, marches and political-party walks, as well as using sound cars to disseminate jingles or messages from candidates or parties.
In addition, a decision of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) of 2019 establishes that spilling and/or consenting to the spilling of advertising material at polling places or on roads close to them, even on the eve of the election, also constitutes irregular advertising.
Tomorrow (2), until the end of voting hours, any collective manifestations of political preference will also be prohibited, including the agglomeration of people wearing clothes or garments that identify them as supporters of a specific candidate or party. Individual manifestations, however, are allowed, provided they are done silently.
This year, electoral propaganda began on August 16, allowing candidates for the positions of president, governor, senator and federal or district deputy to present their proposals and publicize their campaign numbers. More than 156.4 million voters are eligible to vote this Sunday (2) – 9.1 million more than in the 2018 elections, according to the TSE.
