COMPUTERIZED URN USED TO EDUCATE BRAZILIANS ON ELECTRONIC VOTING ON
DISPLAY IN BRASILIA.
An computerized urn is seen on diplay in the pressroom at the
headquarters of Brazil's Supreme Electoral Tribunal in Brasilia October
2, 2002. This box, sporting a portrait of deceased Brazilian pop
musician Cazuza, is a smaple used to educate the public on electronic
voting. Brazil will hold the world's biggest electronic election on
Sunday as 115 million voters vote on 406,000 computerized urns.
Directors at the TSE expect at least 70 percent of the vote to be
counted four hours after the ballots close and 90 percent by the end of
Sunday night. Use of the boxes should be a far cry from the wrangle
over votes in the 2000 U.S. election, which left the superpower without
a new president for 36 days. REUTERS/Jamil Bittar
