Elections 2018: how to report electoral crime and irregular advertising

The voter can report electoral crime and irregular advertising by the Sparrow app. Developed by Electoral Justice, the application allows any citizen to report violations during the 2018 Elections by cell phone. The free tool - available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones - is useful for logging campaign irregularities, which may feature election crime such as a ballot box, purchase of votes, or rallies on the eve of the vote. To report, the user can provide their personal and contact information, but you can also request that the information is confidential.

Through the Federal Public Mystery website (www.mpf.mp.br/pge/banners/denuncia), on the computer, it is also possible to report the infractions. The appeal serves as a mode of supervision during the second round of the 2018 Elections for the positions of presidency of the Republic and state governor. In the following tutorial, check out how to file online through the Election Justice Spark app. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8 with iOS 12, but the tips are also valid for users of the Google operating system.
