About Election Holidays in Chile

Since 1901 presidential elections are declared holidays, as mandated by successive versions of the General Elections law.

Since the late 20th century, parliamentary and municipal elections have also been declared public holidays.

General elections in Chile are held on the third Sunday in November every four years, including presidential, parliamentary and regional elections.

Presidential Elections

The election is held on the third Sunday of November of the year immediately before the end of the administration of the president then holding office.

Should there be more than two candidates in the presidential election, none of them obtaining more than half of the votes validly cast, a new election shall be held. The second election ("balloting"), in the manner determined by law, shall be held the fourth Sunday after the first election, limited to the two candidates with the highest relative majorities.

The president is constitutionally barred from serving consecutive terms.
