Old identity cards still work for voting
Because the identity card is the main requirement for the citizen to vote and there are few days left until the elections and there are low chances of covering all citizens who want to renovate the document, the director of the Civil Registry in Pichincha, Christian Vallejo, said it has opened more service modules and has acquired more staff.
“We have increased almost 40% of our capacity in terms of what we cover at the level of the province.” The idea is to attend, basically, the lost of the ID card, so the person whould have its car on election day. For this reason, Vallejo explained that those who still have the card with the old format (paper) can vote without problems.
The various offices of this dependence will attend until next Sunday with extended hours. Between now and Friday 21, these will be open from 7:00 to 18:00. On Saturday 22, the office will open from 8:00 to 17:00 and on the election day (next Sunday), it will open until 15:00.
When an individual renew the ID card (presenting the old one), it costs $ 10. When loss, the cost is $ 15. Picture is not needed.
