My husband and I haven't changed our DNIs. So in order to vote, we have to go back to Peru
or change our DNIS. If we change them, when we sell our property our taxes go up 600%. From 5% to 30%.
So, YES; you have to vote or pay the fine. After church most of the Peruvians were rushing off to vote. Oh, FYI: You don't have to be living legally in the country to change your DNI either. At least not here in Korea.
So, I'm sure we'll ahve to pay the fines when we go back to Peru, BUT, they seem to forgive the fines every couple of years, so maybe we can luck outl
