The entrance area was carried out alternately in protective masks, while wishing to give his voice the temperature was measured and treated with hand sanitizer.

“in Addition to Havana, we visited 9 cities for early on-site voting, consistent with the Commission the Ministry of foreign Affairs on organization of voting. In fact, managed to go round the whole territory of Cuba. Outside of Havana voted by 172 people.
