The Military Geographical Institute already printed the ballot papers for the second round

Diego Tello, the coordinator of electoral processes of the National Electoral Council (CNE), reported that 100% of the ballot papers for the second round of elections had been printed and their transfer to Cemexpo is being carried out so that the Mogart company assembles the electoral packages.
The CNE held yesterday the first technical meetings at the Military Geographic Institute (IGM) with delegates of the political organizations Alianza PAIS (AP) in the morning, and the CREO-SUMA alliance, in the afternoon.
The CNE showed the security measures and everything that implies the printing of the document until it reaches the hands of the elector.
Tello explained that the previous week, the Plenum of the Council approved some technical changes for the electoral day based on the audits and suggestions of the international observation missions.
Among the new mechanisms is the change of the ballot box/screen that was used in the elections of February 19 and, taking into account that now is just an electoral ballot, there will be an independent ballot box and two screens. In addition, the red marker will no longer be used, but a black gel one, and the bandwidth for the institutional web page will be expanded.
