This is not a political statements, it´s just numbers and general information that every resident in Mexico´s soil could find of good use, there are 2 million 811 thousand 075 registered electors, according to the NATIONAL ELECTORAL INSTITUTE official listings, in last year´s President election Baja had 52% of participation, it´s anybody´s guess if this Sunday this could reach 45% of voters, but you never know.

There used to be “dry law curfew” on electoral days, but BC Congress revoked it, so feel free to go and buy some cold beer, in the “old times” even restaurants were not allowed to serve alcohol to American tourists, the winners of this election will remain in office for only two years, it will happen in five other states: Puebla, Aguascalientes, Durango, Tamaulipas and Quintana Roo, 148 new government officers will be elected, among them 2 Governors, 60 Mayors and 86 State Congress representatives.
