CNE approved electoral register cuts through July 31

This Monday, August 28, the National Electoral Council (CNE) approved the reduction of the electoral register (RE) for July 31, 2023, which reaches 20,948,155 voters. Of these, 20,722,499 are Venezuelans and Venezuelans and 225,656 are foreigners, according to the electoral authority’s Twitter account.

This is one of the first announcements from the new CNE leadership, chaired by Elvis Amoroso. The RE are the most up-to-date data for the next electoral processes: the presidential elections of 2024 and the regional and legislative decisions of 2025.

The electoral body did not say whether there will be another phase of registration in the coming months. In addition, the CNE later also deleted the tweet containing the RE information it had published that afternoon.

This announcement provoked some reactions, such as that of Eugenio Martnez, a journalist specializing in electoral issues, who explained it This data from the CNE must be recalculated. In his opinion, it is estimated as of this writing that at least “3 million of those voters are out of the country (that is, they were unable to vote in the presidential election).”

In this sense, he stated that this was not the case because there was “Political and technical will in the CNEState Department to update the register outside of Venezuela and honest data in the country. Only 107,169 citizens are registered abroad. He added that of the number of Venezuelans allowed to vote abroad in 2024, about 40,000 are registered in the United States and cannot vote because there are no Venezuelan embassies or consulates in the United States.

Martnez also recalled that almost 2 million citizens of voting age are not registered in the RE. He also specified that in this section of the electoral register, Only 16,046 new voters registered in the second quarter of the year.

Students demand more points for the electoral register

The President of the Federation of the University Center of the Central Elective University (FCU-UCV), Jess Mendoza, recalled this Monday, August 28, the requests made to the CNE regarding mobile points in universities because Almost two million young people are not enrolled in religious education.

“It is illogical to think about opening new voting centers and not to focus on the registration of young people and citizens so that they can put themselves on the electoral register. It’s time to get to work and stop wasting your time. “The requests that we made previously continue to apply to the new rectors,” Mendoza told CNE headquarters, where he presented a document to the new authorities of the electoral power.
