O Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) reported around 1 p.m. this Sunday, 2 that the elections for the President of the Republic had already been completed in at least 59 countries. Around 700,000 eligible voters are entitled to vote in one of the 181 registered cities abroad this year. Those wishing to exercise their right can only vote for the President of the Republic. The number of voters abroad represents an increase of 39.21% compared to 2018, when the last general elections were held. Although voting has already ended, the TSE said the official announcement of the results will not take place until 5:00 p.m. in Brasilia, when voting closes across the country. However, he emphasizes that the results can be checked by the voters themselves via the ballot box at each polling station. According to the December 2021 plenary resolution, this year there was a nationwide standardization of voting times, stating that all sections opened at 8:00 a.m. and will close at 5:00 p.m. Brasília time (DF). As long as there are none, voters stand in line. States with a different time zone than the Brazilian capital must adapt to the measure provided for in TSE Resolution No. 23,669, which deals with general acts of the electoral process. The polling stations in Rondônia, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Roraima opened an hour earlier, i.e. at 7 a.m. local time, as well as in some parts of the state of Amazonas. In Acre voting started two hours in advance at 6am and in Fernando de Noronha (PE) the sections opened one hour later than that Brazil.
