What can I do with the online e-Título?
The online e-Título application serves as a digital version of your voter registration card. It contains all the information that the printed version has: voter's name, date of birth, registration number, zone and electoral section and municipality.
Above all, the app brings some extra data, such as the names of the voter's parents, the date of issue of the digital copy and a QR Code with the validation code.
For people who have already had their biometric data collected, the photo taken at the time of registration will appear. In this way, the “Where to vote” option shows information about the place where you vote and routes to get there.
ATTENTION! You need to know that, according to the legislation, only people who present a photo ID on voting day can vote.
In the case of e-Título online, the photo does not appear automatically for everyone. Only people who have already performed the biometric registration have the photo registered in the application.
So, if you have biometrics done and your photo appears in the app, you can use the app to vote in the upcoming elections.
