Valencia, May 27 (EFE)
what is voted
On 28M, two types of elections are held: regional and municipal, in which, simplifying a lot, the president of the Generalitat is elected in the first case and the mayor or mayoress of our municipality in the second.
Specifically, in the regional elections we vote for the 99 deputies of Les Corts Valencianes (from which the president of the Generalitat will emerge). The province of Valencia elects 40 parliamentarians, among 16 candidacies presented; that of Alicante 35, among 16 lists; and that of Castellón 24, for which there are 14 options.
In the municipal ones, we vote for the 5,764 councilors of the 542 municipalities of the Region and of seven local entities (who will elect the mayors and with whom the Provincial Councils will be later configured, made up of 31 provincial deputies in Valencia and in Alicante and for 24 in Castellón).
A total of 3,731,958 people can vote in the regional elections, including 125,708 Valencians living abroad. The new voters, for having reached the age of majority since the 2019 elections, are 166,230.
In municipal elections, the electoral census is made up of 3,680,268 people, including 73,992 foreigners with the right to vote. And the new voters amount to 186,871 since the municipal elections four years ago.
where to vote
A total of 6,169 polling stations will be installed in the 2,178 polling stations that will open this Sunday from 9 in the morning to 8 in the afternoon in the 542 municipalities of the Valencian Community, and where there will be 16,256 ballot boxes, 6,169 voting booths and million ballot papers: 66.4 million for the regional elections and, for example, 9.5 million for the municipal elections of Valencia.
how to vote
People who go to vote will find two ballot boxes: one to deposit the ballot with the candidate chosen for the elections to Les Corts (sepia color) and another with the list for the elections to the City Council of their municipality (white color).
Before voting, you must identify yourself with your ID, passport, driving license or residence card in the case of EU citizens who have one. Can they be expired? Yes. Is a photocopy worth it? No.
As of 8:00 p.m., the counting of votes will begin at the polling stations, which is public and can be witnessed by anyone, in this order: first for local elections and then for regional elections.
The general scrutiny, in which the votes of the absent residents are counted, will be carried out by the Provincial Electoral Boards between June 2 and 5, which, once the appeals that may be presented have been resolved, will proclaim those elected on June 14 .
