The President of Bolivia's electoral commission (Corte Nacional Electoral - CNE), Antonio Costas, has confirmed the likelihood of public holidays in September or October, 2009, to facilitate the upcoming national census.

Originally, the CNE had proposed staggered region-by-region public holidays to coincide with each state's day of biometric census in preparation for the upcoming December 6, 2009, general elections (2009-05-11).

However, last month, the CNE indicated that it would probably opt for a nationwide, same day, public holiday, instead of staggered region-by-region public holidays (2009-06-26).
