The exercise, carried out on a voluntary basis, involves 653 people registered in the Voto en Casa (lit. ‘Home Voting’) program nationwide, 323 of whom are men and 330 women.

The initiative is being executed by the National Electoral Council (CNE) since 2012, which allows this sector of the population to vote at home, with all the guarantees of transparency in the process.

To that end, the CNE had 173 routes established nationwide and each one will serve a maximum of four or five people, under biosecurity measures, to avoid infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

According to the Council, the appropriate mechanisms will be guaranteed so that citizens with disabilities can vote.

A total of 426,738 people with disabilities are part of the electoral roll in Ecuador, and in addition to the Home Voting modality, they have Preferential Attention Tables in the voting precincts, to expedite the right of that segment to define the authorities at the polls.

The elections are set to take place on Sunday throughout the national territory and at the constituencies abroad.
