San Marino: Changes in the voting system could allow the country to use televote!

After yesterday’s announcements on the changing of the voting system for Eurovision 2023, the Head of Delegation of San Marino, states that a new opportunity was born for the country.

The small country that is located inside Italy, has never managed to create a sufficient amount of televote calls, and that is because its telephone networks are connected to those of Italy. So during the televote sequense, it is not possible to distinguish the televotes from San Marino from those of Italy. In the end the result of the televote of San Marino is calculated by the a combination of the results of other countries with similar voting patterns.

After yesterday’s announcements, Alessandro Capicchioni, the Sammarenese Head of Delegation, stated that new online voting, is of great interest. This is what he said to San Marino RTV:

“It could be an opportunity to implement televoting also in San Marino using the new online systems instead of telephone calling.”

We remind you that San Marino will pick its representative through the national final “Una Voce per San Marino” for the second year in a row, which will take place in Teatro Titano right in the heart of the country.

The key dates are:

  • The Academy and Casting – December 13 to 17 and January 3 to January 11.
  • Semi-Finals of Una voce per San Marino – February 12 to 16
  • Final – February 25

The previous winner of Una Voce per San Marino and San Marino’s representative in Eurovision 2022 was Achille Lauro with the song “Stripper“ but he didn’t mange to bring the country to the final for the third time in a row and the fourth time overall, ending up in 14th place of the second semi-final:
