Liván Izquierdo Alonso, first secretary of the Party in Ciego de Ávila, expressed today the conviction that the inhabitants of this province will turn the popular referendum on the Family Code into another victory of the Revolution.
During the monthly exchange with the provincial directors, he checked the assurances to develop this process next September 25, when it is estimated that more than 331,900 voters will attend 895 polling stations to cast their vote.
The also member of the Party’s Central Committee reiterated that a regulation that contemplates every aspect of the diversity of families will be taken to referendum, in such a way that it offers solutions, alternatives and possibilities to all people, in any circumstance, as experts have highlighted.
The spaces for the suffrage will be located in schools, work centers, medical offices and 69 family homes, according to the Provincial Electoral Council (CEP).
Eleven special polling stations will be set up to ensure the right to vote to people who are away from their places of residence for work, educational or personal reasons.
The latter will open at the National Bus and Railway terminals in the main municipality, the provincial hospitals, the Ramón Paz Borroto Defense Training School, a boat of the Azulmar Navy and facilities of the Jardines del Rey tourist destination.
The electoral authorities were sworn in on the scheduled date, have received training and participated in practical exercises, which will make the quality of the process possible.
During the month of August, the lists of voters were printed and published, so that the data could be verified to correct possible errors, a purpose to which the house-to-house verifications by the electoral authorities and representatives of mass organizations in the neighborhoods also contributed.
The material resources (documentation, means of transportation, computer and communications equipment and food) are guaranteed, in addition to an energy backup, assurances that will be verified on September 18 during the dynamic test.
As the 2021-2022 school year resumes, training sessions are being held in high school, technical-professional and higher education centers to explain to those reaching voting age how to exercise their right to vote.
Marlenys Báez Valdivia, vice-president of the CEP, reiterated the importance of continuing to disseminate the benefits of the new Family Code so that voters will consciously go to the polls to vote for a regulation that favors everyone, even when there are disagreements with certain paragraphs.
