On Brazil’s Election Day, October 2, the country will elect its president for the next four years. It will also choose 513 House members, 27 senators (of a total of 81), governors for all 27 states, and thousands of state-level lawmakers.
The Brazilian Report newsroom will cover Election Day from multiple parts of the country and monitor our reactions from South American neighbors and other world leaders from our Buenos Aires office. We have prepared a special live broadcast, following the results live and explaining what they mean for the country now and in the coming years.
This election is seen as arguably the most important since the end of military rule in 1985. And our team will instantly keep you abreast with everything you need to know. Our broadcast starts at 4 pm Brazilian time (3 pm U.S. Eastern Time).
