Bolivian President, Evo Morales, has announced that the government would soon declare staggered public holidays, state-by-state, to coincide with each of the 9 states' day of biometric census to be conducted as preparation to the upcoming December 6, 2009, general elections.

The staggered state public holidays would begin on a Monday in La Paz, to be followed by Potosi, and so on, until all states have been covered.

Specific dates have not been announced, but Bolivia's Electoral commission (Corte Nacional Electoral - CNE), Antonio Costas, has recently announced that the registration of the 4 million eligible voters would begin in July 2009.
