The Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) of Bolivia set two postponements in the October 18 general election so that masses and contagion with COVID-19, a disease that already has more than 106,000 cases, can be avoided in the South American country.

TSE President Salvador Romero stated that people whose ID ends with numbers between 0 and 4 can choose between 8.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m., while those who end with five or more numbers must do so between 12.30 p.m. and 12.30 p.m. . 5 p.m.

In addition, more voting points will be installed and voters will have to come with a mask and leave the center as soon as possible. The authorities also recommend avoiding family members in order to minimize the number of people in each school.

The elections, a repeat of those from 2019 that led to the resignation of then-President Evo Morales, have already been postponed twice due to the coronavirus crisis. Romero has admitted that election day “will be a little different” from other occasions on which, according to the ABI agency, he has asked citizens to work together.
