Libertarian economist Javier Milei of La Libertad Avanza (LLA) emerged as the candidate with the most votes in Sunday’s primaries, garnering 30%. He was followed by the opposition coalition Juntos por el Cambio (JxC), whose candidates Patricia Bullrich and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta between them secured 28.3%. 

Current ruling coalition Unión por la Patria (UxP), who fielded Sergio Massa and minority candidate Juan Grabois, came in a narrow third, one percentage point behind JxC at 27.3%.

Support for the candidates varied drastically between provinces, however. In Buenos Aires City, JxC secured nearly half of all votes, at 48.3%, while Milei came in last. However, in all provinces except Entre Ríos and Corrientes, the opposition were pipped to the post by their rivals.

UxP came out ahead in Buenos Aires province, the most populous in the country. The alliance also had a band of support in northern Argentina, securing an outright majority (53.3%) in Santiago del Estero, and nearly half of votes in Formosa (46.6%). 

Milei secured a broad cordon of support in central Argentina, the Cuyo region (peaking at 47.9% in San Luis) and Patagonia.

Hover your mouse over each province in the map below to see which coalition got the most votes and what percentage the three main coalitions received.

Note that the anti-Kirchnerist Peronist Juan Schiaretti of Hacemos por Nuestro País secured 27.5% of the vote in Córdoba — however, his coalition is not included on this map because he received just 3.8% of the vote nationally.
