Venezuela’s 2005 municipal elections: How they voted

1) The elector pressed the oval(s) corresponding to the candidate(s) of his/her choice, on the electronic voting ballot, then verified on the screen that his/her choice matched.

2) If the voter was not satisfied, he/she could correct it by pressing the wrong choice on the screen and the right choice on the ballot.

3) The voter then pressed the on-screen ‘Vote’ button. If the selection was incomplete the voting machine emitted an alert so that the elector may complete it, and if he/she didn’t do so, the non-selected vote was counted as ‘Null’ (conscious null vote).

4) The voting machine printed a voting voucher, which the elector verified, folded and placed in ballot box.
