    How and
to Vote

    All the US
    Brazilian consulates
    phones and addresses

    Brazilian expatriates may vote at the nearest consulate, providing they have previously
    registered to vote at that consular office. Voters who have registered for the 1994
    elections are already eligible to vote, unless they have moved to another consular
    jurisdiction, in which case they should have re-registered at the new jurisdiction until
    May 15, 1998. Voters who have missed the registration deadline will be ineligible to vote.

    Absentee voters MUST justify their absence on Election Day by either going to a
    consular office, or to the nearest Tribunal Regional Eleitoral (Regional Electoral
    Court) upon returning to Brazil. If the latter applies, voters must provide proof that
    they were abroad either during the first or second round of the election, or both. Either
    way, they will have up to 30 days after the election takes place to justify their absence.
    TSE strictly forbids Brazilians in transit to vote.

    Those voting at local consulates must present their título de eleitor (voter
    card) or the 1998 registration stub, plus a Brazilian I.D. Voters will be assisted on a
    first come, first served basis.
