At least 10 people prevented from voting because their names were crossed out on the lists

Gonçalo Nunes traveled this afternoon to the EB23 Vieira da Silva School, in Carnaxide, to vote, but he was prevented from exercising his civic right because he already had his name removed from the list. It is not a single case – the National Election Commission (CNE) is aware of 10 complaints.

“I signed up to vote in advance last Sunday, but as I didn’t have the chance, I went today. What is my surprise when they tell me that they would have already voted and show me an envelope with my name. And that there was nothing to do “, says Gonçalo Nunes to Expresso.

After being advised to file a complaint with the CNE, Gonçalo also went to a PSP police station in Carnaxide to file another complaint regarding the possibility that his citizen card had been cloned. However, he was told that this hypothesis was “unlikely” and that the “record lapse” was most likely.

“Apparently, there are several cases. Since I shared my story on social networks, 14 more people have reported similar cases, especially in Porto,” he added.

According to the port-train to CNE, this is not an unprecedented situation. There are, in fact, several complaints about similar situations in the last ballots since the voter turnout was eliminated. At issue may be situations of “fraud” or even “errors” in the registration, since organizing the electoral roll in alphabetical order can cause difficulties in the face of names of similar voters.
