Calendar of Mexican Federal and State Elections, 1980-Present

Note: The dates of specific local elections often vary by source. I have attempted to list under the exact month and year only those elections for which I had a reliable source or several sources. If I didn’t have a specific month I have listed the election under the year only, before the division by month. Please let me know if you find discrepancies or have more specific dates. Thank you!
