Electoral activity began on January 3 when 276 registered formations deployed their propaganda arsenal in front of the elections in which 5,660 new dignitaries will be elected.

In this sense, voters will choose the 23 prefects and vice-prefects, 221 mayors, 864 urban and 443 rural councilors, as well as 4,109 members of the parish councils.

Although electoral silence will be imposed as of this Friday, more than 5,000 registered inmates will vote this Thursday, according to the National Electoral Council (CNE).

For his part, the commander of the National Police, Fausto Salinas, pointed out that this Sunday around 52,000 troops will be placed on the streets in order to guarantee security while a special operation will be carried out in 162 electoral precincts.

The measures are taken after the South American nation recorded more than ten attacks and at least three homicides against different candidates and related people during the electoral campaign.

More than 13 million Ecuadorians will vote next Sunday in a country where suffrage is mandatory for those over 18 years of age, with the exception of young people between 16 and 18 years of age, adults over 65 years of age, as well as for the military and police.
