The other exception takes place when the person hinders someone else’s freedom of movement, thus depriving them from their right to vote. Anyone caught committing this offense may be arrested by law enforcement.

The rule as well as the exceptions can be found in Brazil’s Electoral Code. The rationale behind the legislation, inherited from old electoral rules, aims to prevent any authority from using their power of arrest to interfere in the outcome of the elections. The article is the same piece that makes the arrest of candidates, election inspectors, election officials, and party delegates illegal in the 15-day span prior to the election.
