Since 1994, FairVote has followed Mexico's progress toward free and fair elections. What was a fraud-ridden, one-party state a generation ago has evolved into respected representative democracy: professionalized and permanent election administration, top-notch electronic voting equipment, independent redistricting, and several seats elected under proportional voting. This guararantees representation to significant communities of interest who may not find expression through the winner-take-all, single-member district elections making up the remainder of its legislature.
Mexico held its first substantively competitive, multi-party elections in 2000. FairVote frequently analyzes the results of elections to its Chamber of Deputies for proportionality and overall level of voter choice. You can view our studies using the links at left.
