The Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) presented yesterday the update of the electoral roll of Salvadorans abroad. It was carried out by the Electoral Registry Directorate, resulting in 532,363 citizens residing abroad being eligible to exercise their right to vote in the next general election in 2024.
There are 89,879 new Salvadorans residing abroad who now appear in the Electoral Registry (RE). This is when compared to the data published by the TSE on January 28, 2021, when 442,484 were registered, according to the latest reports.
In other words, in three months, the figure will almost reach 90,000 new Salvadorans abroad registered on the electoral roll.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that in the electoral register that was used for the 2021 elections, the diaspora authorized to cast their right to vote totaled 431,445 Salvadorans residing abroad. Therefore, the current increase has been substantial since there are 100,918 new voters who have joined the registry in just one year.
The United States, with 524,687 Salvadorans registered in the RE, continues to be the country with the highest figure in the statistics, followed by Italy with 3,550 compatriots.
For their part, the TSE authorities have emphasized that all updates to the RE are being reported to the Electoral Surveillance Board (JVE), as mandated in the Electoral Code.
