The divided lines, men and women, are getting longer, and under the hot sun, as hundreds of people stand apart from the lines in front of the voting centers.

Schools such as Mauricio Báez, in Villa Juana, Palacio Escolar España, in Villa Agrícolas, the Dominican Republic, in Villa Juana, among others, concentrate hundreds of people who do not keep their distance as a measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
