2017 Legislative Elections Package

The event of the year was the Legislative Elections. Two years after the presidential elections and two years before the next ones. A key time to take the political temperature, measure the strength that each party has in every corner of the country.

That is why we think of a wide visual production to cover all the details of this event.

For the previous months we made:

– Candidates for legislators: what aspects they have in common

This interactive visualization allows to know in a different way the candidates of the two most important districts of the country: City of Buenos Aires and Province of Buenos Aires.
Through the filters placed to the left of the visualization, the user can choose the criteria to order and see how the candidates are similar to each other.

The filters are:

– Those with less than 35 years of age
– Those who seek to reach the Congress for the first time
– Those who have a university degree
– Those who got K officials
– Those with profile outside politics
– Those who were prosecuted by Justice

This development showed day by day how the board of candidatures of the first places in the lists was completed.

Only applied for candidates from the City of Buenos Aires and the Province of Buenos Aires

The visualization is crossed by a main line. Below the possible candidates and above confirmed. As they accepted the candidacy we placed the faces on top.


– Primary: 44% of candidates are women, but only 30% tops the lists

LA NACION was the only news site to have a complete list of all the candidates. We took this opportunity to talk about gender parity.
In Argentina we have a law that says  the lists must have at least 30% of women on the list.
It was interesting to see the place that women are given in each party, and also segmented by province.
