Elections in Nicaragua.

Since March 10, 1989, the Organization of American States has been acting as an observer to the electoral process in Nicaragua, at the request of the government of that country. Some 60 staff members of the OAS General Secretariat and from member states have been involved. The number of OAS observers will increase gradually to a total of 200 by February 25, 1990, when the elections are scheduled to take place.

Nicaraguans registered to vote on four consecutive Sundays in October of last year; during the process OAS representatives visited 3,084 of the 4,394 electoral sites throughout the country.

These photographs were taken during the first Sunday in October when OAS Secretary General, Joao Clemente Baena Soares, personally attended voter registration at several sites in the cities of Managua, La Paz Centro, Nagarote and Granada.
