Brazilian elections 2012, 2014 & 2016: Comments about the election

"... This year’s municipal elections had the lowest cost per vote since 1996, when e-voting started in the country (…) the 2012 municipal election had a cost of R$ 395,270,694.00 (US$ 188,224,140) to the public treasury – this is equivalent to R$ 2.81 (US$1.34) per voter. This amount is 27% lower than in 2010, when the cost per voter reached R$ 3.86 (US$ 1.84) (...) The greater the planning, the lower the cost will be."

Cármen Lúcia Antunes Rocha, President of the Superior Electoral Tribunal (TSE) | July 10th, 2012
