General elections were held in Uruguay on 31 October, alongside a constitutional referendum.[1][2] The result was a victory for the Broad Front, which won a majority of seats in the Chamber of Deputies, and whose candidate, Tabaré Vázquez, was elected President. Vázquez took 51.6 percent of the vote, enough to win without the need for a runoff. It was the first–and to date, only–time since Uruguay instituted a two-round system for presidential elections in 1999 that a presidential candidate has been able to win the presidency in a single round.
