- The constituent election came seven months after a referendum;
- The elections’ attendance was low (38.6%).
Chilean voters went to the polls on Saturday and Sunday and elected 155 constituents, of which 30 were independent candidates (not the traditional left or right parties), and 16 governors, besides councilors and mayors.
The elections were held over two days to avoid crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic, even so, attendance was low (38.6%). The constituent election came seven months after a referendum in which the population said they wanted a new Constitution.
The plebiscite, in turn, was the result of protests and social upheavals that broke out in 2019 and spread to other countries in Latin America.
