With this, the people who will serve as voting juries during legislative elections. In this ‘position’, the selected person will help the voters to exercise their right and will count the votes.
In the hands of the jurors are in charge of the list of registered IDs, the form of the people who voted, the ballots and the voting certificates.
HOW ARE THE VOTING JURIES CHOSEN?
The National Registry of Civil Status selects people from civil society who collaborate as ‘public servants’ during the elections. These citizens are chosen through a software that makes the random selection in the institution’s database.
The list is compiled from information provided by private companies, educational institutions, and political parties and movements.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE A VOTING JURY?
Since February 13, the Registry published the lists of who would be the jurors. Names are published in each entity’s headquarters and in the mayor’s offices of each department.
In addition, you can check if you were selected through the official website of the Registrythe Infovotantes application or with the Human Talent offices of your company or university.
With your identification number you will know if you were chosen. Now, if you were selected, at your cell phone or email you will get the notification.
CAN YOU ASK FOR A CHANGE OF VOTING POSITION?
In the event that the place where you have to be a jury is far from your home, you will not be able to request a change. Nor can he be exonerated from exercising this function.
WHAT DOES A VOTING JURY DO?
In all elections there are always six voting juries for each table, among them, there is a president, vice president and member.
The president is the one who must receive the voter’s identity document and verifies it on the E-10 form, that is, the list of voters. Then, the vice president registers each voter on the E-11 form and the member delivers the ballot.
The other jurors, for their part, are substitutes and must watch over the ballot box, help the voter when needed, and deliver the electoral certificate.
When the day ends, everyone is in charge of counting the votes, destroying the electoral material that was left over and organizing the polling station. In this case, voting hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
In the case of the jurors, they must be there before and leave after, when they have finished counting the votes.
