Candidates Winning The Last Three Presidential Elections Occupied The Same Spot On The Ballot Box

In 2010, Laura Chinchilla occupied the left bottom box on the voting ballot. Oscar Arias did so in 2006, and Abel Pacheo in 2002. All three went on to winning the election.

What do Abel Pacheco, Oscar Arias and Laura Chinchilla have in common besides being the president of Costa Rica? They shared the same spot on the ballot box.

The last three presidential candidates, Pacheco, Arias and Chinchilla, occupied the same position on the ballot box as does now José Maria Villalta does for 2014.

This is the first box to the left on the bottom row.

On Wednesday the Tribunal Supremo Elecciones (TSE) announced the placement of the candidates for the Feb 2 elections, with Hector Monetestiel, candidate for the Workers Party (Partido de los Trajabadores) winning the coin toss, so to speak, for first position (top left).

TSE political adviser, Gustavo Román, said that some have a thesis on the candidates position on the ballot box, but based on the history of elections, he does not believe it influences voter intentions.

The 2014 voting ballot. If the trend of the last three elections continues, Frente Amplio candidate, José María Villalta, could be elected president simply for his position on the ballot.
