President Milei: how much he won and the results map of the 2023 Elections, province by province
When is there a runoff or second round?
Articles 97 and 98 of the National Constitution establish that a candidate becomes President in the first round only when he obtains more than 45% of the affirmative votes in that election, or at least 40% of the votes and a percentage difference greater than 10 points compared to the candidate who came second.
Meanwhile, the Magna Carta provides that, if any of these requirements are not met, a second round must be held, also known as a runoff, in which the two formulas with the most votes in the first round participate. That is, who came out first and who came out second.
Where the presidential candidates await the results of the elections
Leaders and militants from the Unión por la Patria list will meet at the cultural space C Complejo Art Media, located at 6,271 Corrientes Avenue, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Chacarita. This venue, which has 6,000 square meters and capacity for 4,500 people, is the same one that hosted the coalition in the open, simultaneous and mandatory primary elections (PASO).
Regarding the location chosen by La Libertad Avanza (LLA) for the deputy Javier Milei and the representatives of his space to receive the results of the general election, the party also repeats the site of the PASO: the Hotel Libertador, located in the 690 Córdoba Avenue in the city of Buenos Aires.
THE NATIONAL ELECTORAL CHAMBER CLARIFIED THAT THE FIRST ROUND BALLOTS ARE VALID FOR VOTING
The National Electoral Chamber (CNE) clarified that the ballots that were made official for the first round that took place on October 22, in the category of candidates for President and Vice President of the Nation, are valid for voting in this Sunday’s runoff.
Likewise, the official ballots for this Sunday the 19th are valid “respecting the design and without other modifications,” the CNE clarified.
Meanwhile, they explained that the ballots that were used in the open, simultaneous and mandatory primaries (PASO) that were disputed on August 13 are “not valid.”
Within the framework of the second round that will be held this Sunday, Argentines will define the next President and Vice President of the Nation between the formulas made up of Sergio Massa-Agustín Rossi (Unión por la Patria) and Javier Milei-Victoria Villarruel (La Libertad Avanza ).
What happens to those who violate the electoral ban?
Citizens who do not respect the ban can be reported for violation of the Electoral Code and sanctioned if the Justice verifies the fault. The penalties established for those who violate the penalty depend on the non-compliance they incur.
This Sunday, November 19, is the runoff. People over 18 and under 70 years of age who do not comply with the civic duty of voting, and cannot justify their absence, must pay fines ranging from $50 to $500, as established by the National Electoral Code in its article 125, in the “electoral faults” section.
Citizens who do not pay this fine are registered as offenders, which means that they cannot carry out procedures for a year, such as obtaining a passport, and they cannot be appointed to perform public functions or jobs for three years from the election.
