With the only exception of the local municipality of La Sierpe, 110 polling stations were opened in this territory for the people to elect local representatives to government in 50 constituencies.
According to the Cuban Electoral Law, in those electoral colleges where a tie was reported in the first round, only the two tied candidates should be included in the runoff ballots. In case that none of the candidates received the required number of votes, only the two most voted ones were to be listed this time.
