The electoral court signed the contract with NEC-Argentina SA., for the implementation of the biometric vote for the coming December 6 general elections. The contract represents 21 million dollars. The CNE (Corte Nacional Electoral) wants to start registering voters by August 1. For that it needs to deliver the equipment to the 9 departmental courts by July 25. It is calculated that around 10,000 people will work to register all voters at the national level. The government liberated the CNE of 44 million dollars of import taxes to bring the equipment to Bolivia.

What a race!
