As the 2019 election season heats up in Argentina, provincial gubernatorial elections are running their course. Fifteen of the country’s 23 provinces have already picked their governors. As the results roll in, the Peronist coalition is expanding control, while the incumbent Together for Change (Juntos por el Cambio) coalition has one newly elected governor to date in the northern province of Jujuy. (The other provinces that currently have a Together for Change governor is Corrientes in the Northwest, which held elections in 2017, and Buenos Aires province.) Governors serve four-year terms and, depending on the province, they can seek indefinite reelection, serve one term, or—in most cases—can seek reelection once to serve two terms.
Below, AS/COA Online looks at the gubernatorial election cycle as it begins to set the electoral climate leading up to the general elections on October 27.
