In Spain,except in municipalities that operate in the open council system because they have less than 100 residents, the Mayor is not directly elected by the voters. The voters select the Councillors and then the Mayor is chosen from those that were at the top of the lists.

In general, voting is universal, free, equal, direct and secret. Voting in Spain is not mandatory, therefore sanctions are not imposed on those who do not vote, even though they have previously declared their desire to do so.

The truth of the matter is simple........ when you don't vote, you let others speak for you.
We are fortunate to have fair and democratic methods in place for the selecting of political representation. To not take part in the process, or to feel like our opinion doesn't matter, would be to waste the incredible power that we posess.
The power of a single vote is staggering. It is our right to stand up and be counted, and the way to do so is by casting our ballot.

To make politicians listen
For your children
For your community
To honor history
To control your future
To stop something
To start something
