Rosario: the middle class neighborhoods voted for progressivism and Cambiemos; the poorest to Peronism

Although at a general level the election for councilors was won by the Progressive Front (FP), when it comes to geographically analyzing the vote, it allows for second readings. The social structure of suffrage in the city seems to be reiterated in each election. In the more affluent areas, the people of Rosario favored the FP and Juntos por el Cambio. While in the most neglected neighborhoods Peronism triumphed again.

Together for Change

According to the data provided by the Electoral Tribunal, in the three sections of the center and in Fisherton, Together for Change was the most voted front. There it narrowly surpassed the Progressive Front.

In terms of individual votes, the current councilor Anita Martínez was second (the first was Ciro Seisas) in the three central sectionals, but the good choice of Carlos Cardozo in these sectors (he was able to place himself as the fourth most voted individual candidate), more the sum of the rest of the JxC candidates (eight in total) caused this force to finally surpass the FP.

In the 17th section, in Fisherton, Martínez was placed in third place and again the performance of his teammates, especially Cardozo, was key.

The progressive vote

Meanwhile, the Progressive Front, as seen on the map, managed to claim victory in 10 of the 22 circuits in which the city is organized. The ruling party -which had five lists in its internal- was the first minority, especially in the macro-center and in the northern corridor.

In the macrocenter, Ciro Seisas was the most voted in the neighborhoods República de la Sexta, Abasto, Parque, Cura, Echesortu, La República, Pichincha and Agote.

It also triumphed in southern neighborhoods such as Tiro Suizo or Bella Vista, as well as those in the north including Refinería, Puerto Norte, Arroyito, Sarmiento, Alberdi and La Florida.

In all of these districts, Seisas was the candidate with the most votes, far outperforming the candidate who placed second.


The Frente de Todos, meanwhile, managed to win in 8 sections, mainly those located in the most peripheral areas of the south, southwest and northwest of the city. This front gathered a total of ten lists in its internal.

This force is the second most voted in the city. It was in sections 11, 16, 18, 19, 21, sub 1ª and sub 2ª where the justicialismo took more advantage.

The most voted candidate for councilor was Lisandro Cavatorta, who ranked first in neighborhoods such as Las Heras, Roque Sáenz Peña, Mercedes de San Martín, Ludueña, Empalme and Nuevo Alberdi; some of these neighborhoods with a tradition of the Peronist vote.

Monteverde and Tessandori

As stated throughout the day, in addition to these three fronts, the performances of Juan Monteverde and Miguel Tessandori, leaders of Ciudad Futura and the Volver list, respectively, were very good.

Both alternated fourth and fifth place, if the election by alliances is counted (with the exception of the Nuevo Alberdi neighborhood, where Monteverde was third).

Going a bit deeper, we can see, above all, a very good choice of Monteverde in La Sexta, Abasto and Echesortu. While Tessandori obtained more votes in the peripheral neighborhoods.
