Brazilians in Japan and elsewhere on the planet also vote

There are almost 700,000 Brazilians living abroad who participated in the 2022 elections.

They only voted for president, because it would not be possible to define exactly which state each Brazilian is in so that he can vote for senator, governor, federal deputy and state deputy.

We hope that this will happen soon. But, for now, it is great news that Brazilians who are not in Brazil can participate in the choice of the next president.

And, as is well known, the policy adopted in Brazil does not only affect who is in the country, but who is a Brazilian citizen. Therefore, it is very important that voters who are not in the country make their choice and also know the proposals. One of them may have a proposal that pleases him more and that also better meets his desires even though he is not in Brazil. In addition, the government can also represent and help the interests of his family members who are in the country.

In many places on the planet, elections started earlier than in Brazil. For the sake of the time zone, Japan, as well as New Zealand, started voting when in Brazilian lands it was still Saturday, 10/1.
