Four hours then, 20 minutes now

Last October, it took me four hours to cast my vote. This time, it went much quicker. At 11 a.m., my voting center wasn’t packed, but people were going in and out.

What could be the reason behind it? Well, looks like the bottleneck known as SIE (Electoral Information System) is not having the same impact as last time. The lines are still visible at some of the tables, but I can confirm this process was much more fluid and fast.

Of course, some preferred to wait until the afternoon before going out to vote. My advice for them is: if you have the chance to vote now, do so.

Don’t wait to the last minute. GO AND VOTE!
