CAMAGUEY. In my block there are no electoral registers, I don’t have an electoral cell that is coveted by political servants, my candidates don’t promise to break later, but they are there on their merits, the ballot boxes are not guarded. from the military, they are guarded by authors such as Pavel Daniel, Osmani and Harold, all sixth graders at the Raúl Rodríguez School. When I put my ballot in the ballot box, they said loudly and forcefully: They have decided, because this Sunday is also a part of the little ones at home, it is time to learn that when it is their turn to be in my place.
“We are here to take care of the voters so that there is no fraud, that no one takes the ballot, that everything is fine because these elections are very important. Tomorrow I will tell my classmates everything I did here”, commented Osmani Pérez Ramírez.
Pavel Daniel Issac Rivero likes the history of Cuba very much, he didn’t say but he showed: “Before 1959 the boxes of military cards were kept and what still happens in many parts of the world, here the children take care. and that is very nice.
For Harold Álvarez Rivero is also part of the Sunday elections, one of those who are not calm, one of those who subvert their schools with energy, walking from here to there. “I’m really glad that we’re in this, because apart from taking care of the repulses we played with each other and taking the time to fly, I’ve already ended up changing my life and staying longer.”
Counting elections in my neighborhood cannot be done without talking about Raquel García Benavides, at 84 years old she was one of the first voters, and this one of those who are aware of everyone in the College, to carry water when the heat is pressing. the girls at the table, to remind the neighbors to vote and also not to miss the count, at the end of the day.
“I know very well what these elections mean to Cuba, they lived in which the candidates went and promised to fix the roads, build schools and after the electoral process they forgot about the people who voted for them.”
Raquel was not ignorant of the matter of the region. “These are difficult times in which we need to change things, to choose those who can represent us better,” he explained.
So the elections in my neighborhood, in Cuba, are a day of rest, study and commitment, because we know that our vote counts to build a better country.
