Abstract

VALDEZ ZEPEDA, Andrés  and  PANIAGUA VAZQUEZ, Abraham. Criminalidad, inseguridad pública y comportamiento de los electores: un análisis del proceso electoral estatal 2010 en Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. Estud. front [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.23, pp. 49-78. ISSN 0187-6961.

This text analyses the effect of the insecurity crisis as a result of the "war against narcotrafic" in the behaviour of citizens in election times. We particulary describe the effect of the current public safety crisis in the results of the local elections in Ciudad Juarez in 2010. We conclude that violence and insecurity crisis oriented voting behavior. Ciudad Juarez case shows that, despite public insecurity and violence indicators, the Partido Revolucionario Institucional, as the local and national ruling party, won the election.

Keywords : crisis of insecurity; conduct of the voter; violence; elections 2010; Juarez City; theories of vote.
