Correos has addressed the Central Electoral Council to request an extension of the time to deposit a mail vote until tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. The voting-by-mail period ends, for the time being, today, July 20, “during the extended hours of each office.”
The deadline for voting by mail ends today at the moment
As mentioned VIAt 1:00 pm the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) will meet to decide whether or not to accept the post office application. José Luis Alonso Nestal, Deputy Director of Postal Operations, confirmed this morning that there are still “170,000 votes to be collected”, and assured that “everyone is calm” because “the offices will not close if you are in line”.
In the letter, Curios justifies his motion “in an effort to favor the exercise of the right to vote for all interested citizens.” He adds that some citizens have contacted his offices “interested in the possibility of sending their electoral documents to a different address.” “It requires extraordinary human effort and resources for Correos,” the company adds, requesting an extension of the deadline.
So far, when JEC has received a request from the Post Office about extending the term, the board has approved it. The a formal message requesting something that is submitted to an dominance was introduced after Correos asked anyone wishing to vote by mail to “implement procedures as quickly as possible, take advantage of the post office’s long hours, and try not to leave it until the last minute to avoid waiting and unwanted backlogs.”
He delivered 89.3% of the voting documents by hand and did not specify the rest
Yesterday, more than 282,000 people were still waiting to collect votes by mail for next Sunday’s elections in the offices of the Postal Company, as they were not present in their homes when the postman went to deliver them even twice, while there were 2,342,430 documents. Hand-delivered to voters 89%.
