Time left to vote

Of all the applications, 20% of the voters, equivalent to some 480.000, have already cast their vote. However, for those who have not yet done so, there is still a period of 8 days, until July 20, to be able to exercise their right.

Normal operation in post offices

Mail agencies will be willing to work as normal during the elections
