This Sunday, the country will also choose the members of the Departmental Board (councilors). The five-member Municipal Council will also be elected in the districts where it applies.
The people will be able to vote for the Mayor through a ballot paper, which will be headed by the name of the political party and the date of the election. The candidate that receives the majority of the votes in each Department will be chosen as "Mayor".
The leftist Broad Front (FA) party's candidate for mayor Carolina Cosse leads the polls as the winner in the capital Montevideo, a city that concentrates 53 percent of the country's population.
