Spain: 36.8 million Spaniards called to the polls

Madrid/ On Sunday at 9:00 am, 23,196 polling stations will open their doors to 36,893,976 Spaniards, 1,157,196 of whom will be able to exercise their right to vote for the first time in the thirteenth general elections of democracy.

According to the data offered by the Ministry of the Interior, schools will be open, as on previous occasions, between nine in the morning and eight in the afternoon, and the speed in the data dump makes foreseeable that most of the results – always provisional on the day of the elections – is about 22:30.

Election day will start at eight o’clock in the morning, when the 180,114 citizens designated as table members and the 360,228 substitutes will have to be in their electoral college to start the process.

Once each polling station has been completed in the respective schools -the alternates that are not necessary are removed-, the members of the same will have at their disposal 912,000 manuals to be able to handle themselves.

They will open 23,196 schools with 60,038 polling stations, 58,000 voting booths, 212,000 ballot boxes, 375 million ballots and 67 million envelopes.

Who can vote?

They will be able to vote 34,799,999 residents in Spain, as well as 2,093,977 residents abroad, who will choose 350 deputies and 208 senators.

Of these 1,157,196 are young people who can vote for the first time and another 100,000 are people who can do so for the first time in history thanks to the reform in October 2018 of the Organic Law of General Electoral Regime, which allows suffrage to people with intellectual disabilities, mental illness or cognitive impairment.

There are also procedures to facilitate voting for people with visual and auditory difficulties.

The Ministry of the Interior will post the data of the results on the web https://resultados.eleccionesgenerales19.es.

To ensure both cyber and physical security, the Government has launched a system to shield the shipping and handling of electoral data has strengthened anti-terrorism measures Level 4 alert and will have assets 92,000 officers from different police forces. (April 28, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
