Brazil’s Superior Electoral Court is expected in November to disclose a list with the cities to take part in the pilot project of the National Identification Document (DNI), a digital document combining Brazilians’ ID, tax-payer, voter, and driver’s license numbers.
Experts are working on the list of cities prepared to start issuing the DNI. Cities with a higher number of people biometrically registered as voters are likely to make the list—a number reported to add up to 100 million countrywide.
The DNI’s pilot project was launched in 2018 by the government and the Superior Electoral Court, which will provide the biometrical database. Early in January, the government resumed past efforts to build the digital base unifying all the identification numbers.
