Brazilians call for paper ballots in 2022 election

Bolsonaro has insisted for months that Brazil should adopt the paper ballot, even though a constitutional amendment changing the electoral system has not gained much traction in Congress.

He advocates a mixed system in which voters submit ballots at electronic urns, which also print out votes that can be counted if the result is challenged.

Bolsonaro supporter, Eliseu Candido said, "It is not just about supporting the President, but for a vote that can be audited and which we all want, it's a show of honesty from the country and the Brazilian people."
