After the confirmation of the electoral formulas, the Argentine electoral calendar is launched with a view to the primary elections, which will take place on August 13. The National Electoral Chamber has established the key dates for the electoral process, including the mandatory presidential debates that will take place on October 1 and 8, and a possible third debate on November 12 in the event of a second round.
Last Saturday marked the official start of the electoral campaign, where the pre-candidates for the presidency began to deploy strategies to attract voters, using social networks, posters, graffiti and advertising in the media. As the process progresses, citizens will be able to consult the electoral rolls and polling station authorities will be designated.
