Abstract:

The aim of this paper was to explain the vote in the 2003 Mexican legislative elections. To do so, I utilized a post-electoral public opinion poll carried out by Parametrica. Rational Choice theory, the institutional (political cynicism) and the societal approaches provided the general framework of analysis. Borrowing from this literature, I argued that party id, political cynicism, and societal factors (social class) mostly explain the voting turnout in the 2003 legislative elections. Results from a probit regression analysis indicate that this actually was the case, although not all the variables (especially within the political cynicism factors) were significant. The probability of a positive voter voting (86.86) is higher than the negative voterís (36.32).
