Electronic voting machines are up and running. 2022 Election”.

The military participated for the first time as observers of the elections and voting system at the request of Jair Bolsonaro, who had been the target of a smear campaign against the Brazilian leader in the months leading up to the election. Elections are never subject to allegations of fraud.

Truckers staged hundreds of roadblocks across the country in the three days after the election, but sparked protests after Bolsonaro urged his supporters not to cut off citizens’ free movement.
