The videos explain how each part of the electronic voting machine works.

In one more action to combating disinformation about elections on social media, the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) used Kwai to show what is an electronic ballot box inside. The recordings, released on the short video platform this Thursday (23), show the equipment being dismantled.

Presented by the organization’s Electoral Technology coordinator, Rafael Azevedo, the videos explain, in simple language, everything about the device that began to be used in the country in the mid-1990s. It is possible to discover, for example, the parts that make up the urn and what each of them does.

The agreement between the TSE and the app also includes a special page on the platform, which brings together the contents of the action and the link to the new hotsite on the equipment, developed by the Court. To access these details, simply use the hashtag #DeOlhoNaUrna on the social network.
