Brazilians who live abroad are not alienated from exercising their citizenship. In addition to the services of enrollment, transfer of domicile, issuing of a new voter's certificate, data revision and justification of nonattendance, Brazilian voters are able to vote in the election for President of the Republic.
According to the Brazilian electoral code, voting sections abroad are available only in places where there are at least 30 registered voters.
Balloting outside the Brazilian territory is organized by the Regional Electoral Court of the Federal District, with the support of the Consulates and diplomatic missions in each country.
At the end of the election, the data is sent to the headquarters of the representative bodies, which forward the material to the Ministry of Foreign Relations. Its final destination is the Regional Electoral Court of the Federal District, which computes the votes and decides on any matters that may arise during the voting.
