On Sunday, October 25, 59,522 people will be authorized to vote in 65 countries with 113 voting locations and 247 polling stations.

Chile’s Electoral Service (SERVEL) held a videoconference with the presidents and secretaries of electoral commissions abroad. The event was organized by the General Directorate of Consular Affairs, Immigration and Chileans Abroad in the context of the implementation of the national referendum, which will take place on October 25.

The goal of the videoconference was to explain aspects of health protocols, which are general and mandatory for the presidents of electoral commissions, delegates of voting locations, advisors and election officials.

On Sunday, October 25, 59,522 people will be authorized to vote in 65 countries with 113 voting locations and 247 polling stations.

SERVEL noted that elections abroad should be held in accordance with health protocols, just as they are in Chile, and that they should follow the standards set by local authorities.

The event was attended by SERVEL International Unit Chief Andrea González and members of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, who answered questions posed by electoral commission presidents regarding the main aspects of the voting process.
