What to know about the historic elections that could lead a woman to the presidency of Mexico

Mexicans will vote on Sunday in historic elections in which gender, democracy and populism will come into play, as they chart the path forward in an election marked by cartel violence.

With two women leading the polls, Mexico could elect its first female president, a big step in a country long marked by its “macho” culture. The elections will also be the largest in the country’s history, with more than 20,000 positions up for grabs in Congress and local governments, according to the National Electoral Institute.

The number of disputed charges fueled bloodshed during the campaigns, as criminal groups used local elections as an opportunity to exercise their power. A series of cartels and gangs disputed the territory and more than 20 people seeking public office were murdered this year.
