    Electoral Tribunal of Costa Rica Guarantees Accommodations to Special Needs VotersThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Thousands of disabled, elderly, and prisoners will be assisted to exercise their right to vote without problem on February 2, the day of the presidential elections in Costa Rica, said the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE).

    The TSE will open 30 polling stations in 21 correctional centers with a total of 8,634 voters, while about 2,000 seniors will have the ability to vote at polling stations located in 38 nursing homes.

    People with low vision can use a guide for their signature and a magnifying glass to better see the ballot. Those who suffer from a visual impairment may use a Braille template ballot.

    The TSE will have the collaboration of some 2,000 young volunteer guides who are responsible for guiding people with disabilities and older adults.

    Article 181 of the Electoral Code states that people who have difficulties in exercising suffrage by themselves can choose between a public vote or a voting attendent must be requested to the polling station.

    For the elections about 3.1 million Costa Ricans will be eligible to vote for the president and the 57 members of the Legislative Assembly who shall serve for the 2014-2018 period. (EFE)
