THE IMPACT OF CORRUPTION ON VOTER PARTICIPATION: AN ANALYSIS OF THE LAST 3 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS IN MEXICO
The low levels of voter participation in Mexico's presidential elections, and the high levels of corruption constitute the center of this study. Specifically, I focus on analyzing the potential impact of corruption on voter turnout in Mexico's presidential elections for the years 2000, 2006 and 2012. By running a fixed effects model I find that there is a positive relationship that is statistically significant at the 90% level of confidence. The recommendations derived from these results focus on implementing comprehensive programs and actions that involve the participation of the government and civil society in an effort to tackle corruption while forming better citizens in a united effort to build a strong and lasting democratic country.
