– ONPE speaks –
Elizabeth Jiménez, Spokesperson for ONPE spoke about these matters. He indicated that this institution does not elaborate the voter list, but the National register of identity and civil status (Reniec), who previously carry out a verification of the domicile of the citizens.
"For the closing of the register, which took place on October 22, 2017, Reniec conducts house checks, and in case they are found or not (the person), they bring it back to their old district," he said in communication with Canal N.
Similarly, he indicated that Bocanegra should approach the Reniec to regularize his address so that he can vote in subsequent elections in San Borja. Despite this process, however, you still have to vote in Pataz at the 7 October elections.
