A little more about the elections

Some people may find this interesting.

The elections finished at 5 pm, October 29th.

Before 9 pm of the same day, the new Governor was announced by the Electoral Court.

It took less than four hours to count all votes.
And despite the very tight difference in the number of votes (particulary in the first round), there was not any questioning by the any of the candidates. Nobody mentioned recounting, nobody doubts that the elections were free and fair.

For more than ten years, Brazil has been using electronic ballots.
After a ballot is closed, someone just picks up a diskette and takes it to the Electoral Court, where all diskettes are processed.
In this aspect, Brazil is a developed country.
