Election Year

2008 is an election year in Brazil. We are going to vote to mayor and councillors. But if we are travelling abroad, how can we vote? we don't vote, we justify it.

We have until 30 days after get back to Brazil, to justify our vote. We have to go to to the nearest electoral office, show copies of our passport and fly ticket.
The voting is compulsory in Brazil, so if we don't vote, we can suffer some limitations, as well not to apply for puplic tender or to provide vestibular.
It's a funny way to do democracy in Brazil but law is law, we have to follow it.
