Venezuela’s 2013 municipal elections

Since beginning to automate its elections in 2004, Venezuela has now what is probably the most auditable, transparent and accurate voting systems in the world. It was put into action once again on 8 December, this time to help Venezuelans choose:

  • 355 municipal mayors
  • The Caracas metropolitan mayor
  • The district mayor for Alto Apure
  • 1,680 nominal councilmen (selected individually by their names)
  • 686 list councilmen (selected by voting for a given political party)
  • 20 district councilmen

In total, voters filled 2,792 public offices from a pool of 16,880 candidates. 

Our voting platform fully automated every step, from the biometric authentication of voters to the broadcast of official results.
