Call to Sign the Modification of the Electoral Law / Silvio Benítez Márquez

In late January of this year, 2011, we launched an initiative to modify the Cuban Electoral Law, in particular Article 171 that limits the parameters voters may consider to determine for which candidate to cast their vote, as well as four more articles to make the principal modification coherent.

At the suggestion of many citizens who have become aware of the initiative and after having collected and introduced the proposed corrections, we invite all Cubans interested in supporting this idea, to sign it, with the aim of channeling it as a formal proposal to the relevant institutions .

The signature collection process began on March 14 and runs through September 30 of this year. Those interested will accompany their signatures with their full names, municipality of residence and identity card number.
