Massive Turn-out at Second Round of Municipal Elections

Havana, April 27 (RHC)-- Over 1.2 million Cubans were called to vote at the second round of municipal elections in 1.166 electoral districts, in all 149 Cuban municipalities needing to complete the total of local government representatives.

The National Electoral Commission reported that with only an hour before closing voting stations on Sunday, a total of 941,041 citizens had cast their ballots.

The vote took place at more than 3,300 voting stations between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. When the voting was over, electoral authorities counted ballots publicly.

This second round was carried out to elect one of the two candidates to municipal delegates or councilors, who received, in each district, a larger amount of valid votes than the rest of those nominated for the first round of elections held April 19th.
