Published 2 October 2022

Polls in this Sunday's general elections in Brazil began to close at 17.00 local time (20.00 GMT), after a day of voting that took place normally.

 Brazil to Say Enough to Intolerance on Election Day: Haddad

The counting of votes is expected to be fast thanks to the electronic system used in the country, and the result will be known within a few hours.

If a candidate obtains 50 percent plus one of the valid votes, he/she will get the victory without the need to go to the ballot, scheduled for Sunday, October 30.

More than 156 million Brazilians were called to vote on this day.
