Elections not high on agendas of many

Despite the millions of pesos being spent on publicity this election season, the majority of voters in Jalisco don’t recognize the candidates for political positions, according to a survey conducted by Guadalajara daily El Informador. 

Seven out of ten potential voters who took part in the survey were unable to name any of the candidates who aspired to political office in their municipalities or districts. In Guadalajara, where a fierce race is being waged for the job of mayor, some respondents thought that leading contenders Ricardo Villanueva and Enrique Alfaro were actually running for federal office in Mexico City. What’s more, four out of ten participants in the survey didn’t know which district they lived in.
