Historic Mexican Elections Include Vote For New Baja California Governor | KPBS

June 6 is election day for Mexico.

Thousands of offices are at stake, and almost half of the country will elect new governors.

Christian Dunn, a representative for the Morena party, said this election is the first of its kind.

“This is the largest election in the history of Mexico because it’s a concurrent election. Before, local elections were held one year and federal elections the next. For the first time, federal and local elections have been combined,” said Dunn.

INE, the Instituto Nacional Electoral, or Electoral National Institute, is the sole organization putting together the electoral process for Mexico.

In Baja California, seven candidates are running for governor. Three of them are women.
