According to verification, Azuay, Bolívar, El Oro, Imbabura, Loja, Tungurahua and Zamora Chinchipe have the ballots ready with a view to the anticipated elections, and work is being done on the preparation of those of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas and Pastaza.

The president of the CNE, Diana Atamaint, reported that the security levels of the ballots "guarantee that they cannot be falsified, altered or duplicated."

The CNE authorities plan to print 52.8 million ballots, which will be used in the first round, and some 15.5 million for the second.

In the IGM facilities, all the electoral documentation will also be ready, such as registers, voting certificates, minutes, among others, the result of a contract signed between the IGM and the CNE.

In this sense, 16 provinces and constituencies abroad have already completed the qualification of candidates, while in Los Ríos, Galápagos, Manabí, Orellana, Pichincha, Sucumbíos, Cañar, Carchi and the constituency of Europe, Asia and Oceania, it is still pending.

The official of the electoral entity stated that Ecuadorians registered abroad will vote electronically abroad for the 2023 early elections.

For its part, the Electoral Contentious Tribunal (TCE) is in charge of resolving pending appeals and objections, and it is expected that the lists should be available by August 6.
