The electoral legislation also does not allow the placement of advertising of any kind on trees and gardens located in public areas, in addition to places such as walls, fences and dividing walls.

The inspection of the court can also remove materials that disturb public peace or that harm hygiene and urban aesthetics, in addition to prohibiting vehicles from abusing the sound volume.

According to the TRE, when faced with a problem related to the electoral campaign, anyone must take a photo, record a video or audio and, through the Pardal app, send the evidence to the Electoral Justice. The application can be downloaded on mobile phones with Android and iOS systems.

In addition to elements that indicate the existence of the denounced fact, the name and CPF of the person who denounced must be included. All complaints are treated as confidential by the system, ensuring the confidentiality of the identity of the complainant.

Until 10:20 am this Friday (23), Pardal had received a total of 2,614 reports of irregular advertising in Pernambuco, 978 of them in Recife. Most complaints are about placing flags in inappropriate places, disturbing pedestrians.
