The Movimiento al Socialismo, a leftist party led by Evo Morales, leads the voting for now. This data was offered by several polling companies who affirmed that Luis Arce, MAS presidential candidate, is ahead on the balloting with 31.6 %.  As the governmental body reports, 301 of the limited balloters live abroad: 182 in South America, 25 in North America, 93 in Europe, and 1 in Asia. 

Among the disabled causes, as TSE exposed, are the documentation errors, underage, interdepartmental inscription, possible double identity or identity theft and a departmental TSE suspension. According to Romero, the disabled voters' list includes citizens who did not vote in the 2016 referendum or judicial elections in 2016.

The TSE publishes this Sunday the list of those disqualified from voting in the 2020 General Elections
