Argentina follows a democratic system where elections are held to determine the composition of the government at various levels. Here is an overview of the electoral process and major elections in Argentina: Presidential Elections: Presidential elections in Argentina are held every four years. The president is elected through a two-round system. If a candidate receives more than 45% of the valid votes or secures at least 40% with a margin of 10% over the second-place candidate, they are elected in the first round. Otherwise, the top two candidates from the first round proceed to a second round, where the candidate with the majority of votes is elected as the president. Legislative Elections: Legislative elections are held to elect members of the National Congress, which consists of the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies. Elections for one-third of the Senate seats and all the Chamber of Deputies seats occur every two years. The distribution of seats in the Chamber of Deputies is based on proportional representation, while the Senate seats are allocated to each province and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. Provincial and Municipal Elections: Argentina has 23 provinces, and each province holds its own elections to choose governors and provincial legislators. Municipal elections are also held to elect mayors and councilors in cities and towns across the country. The specific electoral systems and dates can vary between provinces and municipalities.
