They are not simple words, but rather it is a practice that is carried out an and another time since in l976, we took an important step in the institucionalization of the archipelague, with the creation of the Organs of the Popular Power.

And something that can be good to clarify the ideas to more than a doubtful or not well informed in any latitude: in the earth of Marti and Fidel is not abstentionism, inherent characteristic to all the electoral processes in the calls “democracies” in those that you grieve 50% converges to the urns and sometimes less than the citizens with age for it (that non right, because to many are vetoed, he buys or manipulates).

The attendance to the elections in Cuba surpasses 85% like average thoroughly, and until people of very advanced age, handicapped physical and sick persons demand are transferred, still in seats of wheels, toward the schools, to feel direct participants of so important decision. To other, are taken the ticket to their homes, guarded by representatives of the organizations of masses (never of the Communist Party, or of the Armed Bodies) with a grateful prestige before their neighbors, and something that has not lacked a single time: the children of the Organization of Pioneers “José Martí” that guarantee the transparency of a fact of such a seriousness with their presence, and ratify with the characteristic greeting that everything goes of agreement with the strictest norms.

You choose to who govern it, since from the same beginning of the electionary process, in the nomination assemblies, next to the rest of the residents of the vicinity, proposes to the most capable and with more prestige, given by their attitude before the other ones, their delivery to the work and their honesty to all test. Then taking the word, argues the reasons, and the other ones, after listening other options, decide, in an open way and raising the hand, to nominate the candidates to delegates of the district level.

After the elections, as this of tomorrow, and with the quarry of base representatives, the Municipal Assemblies are constituted, that is to say, the maximum government organs in that level.

With similar diaphaneity, and with the total absence of campaigns, we choose the Cubans to those who administer our social system.

For that reason, very early, and as species of friendly competition that goes after the very common one, somebody knocks on their door in the luminous morning that begins and after the one forced “good morning” with a frank smiles, informs : “ I already vote, and you?

Elections in my Cuba

By :Yuldys Márquez Díaz / Television Camagüey

I still remember the first years of my life, of pioneer, when in electoral process, I played to take care of the urns. We were a group of boys that we got up early very excited for the task that were indicated and we made it with total seriousness, even when raised us then there was certain displeasure, because we didn't want to leave on the side of the urns. In an occasion sprinkled and my uniform was wet and I could not get dressed as the other pioneers, my shame was noticed, because to take care of the electoral urns is for each pioneer a task of honor.

In this electoral process, already happened and for a lot, my years of pioneer. Today the honor is another. The one of being able to also choose the person that will represent me, to my neighbors and family, without a convulse climate mediates, contrary to what happens in the elections of other countries. In Cuba the town is who chooses by means of the free, direct and secrete vote.

For these elections besides exercising the vote, I have the responsibility of, by means of my profession, to tell to the world how transparent is this process in my Island. To counteract all the mediatic infamy that is schemed around our revolutionary process.

To tell them that in the partial elections of the Popular Power 2010, main characters that don't take another name know that it is not town. Magali, the neighbor of the neihgbourhood The garden that takes lending her house for more than ten years so that are carried out the votings of her area there; Daniel, a grandfather that today dawned wanting to be the first one in voting, for not losing that tradition in its district and it stops then to support to the electoral table in that it is necessary. To also count them that Rafaela is part of the group of women of Camagüey that support the Cuban electoral process unconditionally in the county of Camagüey. To assure them that the feminine genius has its protagonism in the one filled of documents, the work in the informative system, the communications, among other insurance.

The elections in Cuba are this way, only a look without obstacles, can show it.
