Biometrics in the 2018 Elections: How to know if your title was canceled

The biometric registration will be mandatory to vote in some cities in Brazil. At those polling places, those who did not register for biometrics have the voter's title canceled by the Superior Electoral Court. The measure has raised doubts among voters because they do not know if they will be able to participate in the 2018 Elections on October 7. There is also uncertainty about which cities require digital registration. On the TSE website, you can check the status of your title and check the list of cities with mandatory biometric review in each state. The procedure can be done in any Internet browser, such as Google Chrome and Firefox, for example.
