As December’s municipal elections draw near, the National Electoral Council said a list of approved and secure voting centers will be released within the next few days.
CNE President Socorro Hernandez said that the list of relocated voting centers will be published on the CNE's web site.
"To relocate a voting center is not an abnormality in the process, it is a power of the CNE to do it if necessary ... there is a portion that will return to their original centers, and there are others that will remain in the schools that were relocated," Hernandez said.
The precautionary measures were incorporated into every election following July’s violent right-wing disruptions during the National Constituent Assembly elections. Approximately 203 electoral centers were relocated during October’s regional elections.
Some of the previous centers located in private schools have declined the use of their facilities due to right-wing violence, while the physical infrastructure of other locations were found to be inadequate.
The official list of accredited electoral witnesses for mayoral candidates will be announced by the CNE Thursday, while electoral campaigns will come to a close Dec. 7, three days before the regional elections begin in the 335 municipalities.
