Elections are a means to understand the political culture of the Republic of Gran Colombia. This article analyzes the elections held in the provinces of Barinas and Casanare in August 1820 and October 1821, to elect the representatives who would attend the General Congress of Colombia to be held in Cúcuta. In comparison with previous elections, the experience and results obtained from this process offered the Colombian representative system the possibility of becoming a viable project that would last a decade.
