A constitutional referendum is slated to take place on Sunday, February 24, asking voters if they approve updates to the country's constitution passed by the National Assembly in July 2018. Unauthorized demonstrations are possible in the weeks leading up to the vote. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be anticipated near polling stations on February 24.
In July 2018, Cuba's National Assembly of People's Power passed a set of amendments to the country's constitution, recognizing private property, banning certain forms of discrimination, establishing limits on presidential terms, and reestablishing the presumption of innocence.
Individuals in Cuba are advised to avoid potential demonstrations and polling stations as a precaution.
