First, note that Brazilian elections are simple compared to
those in the US. Only one race per election. Vote for MP.

Second, note that while the Brazilian government is quite
proud of their system, and in many ways, rightly so, there
are dissenters. See this web page:

   Voto Eletrônico - Privacy International Contest

The web page includes links to English versions (Act 1
