Argentina will hold presidential and congressional elections on October 23. The same day, local elections will take place in select provinces; other local races have already taken place or will be held on other dates. Overall, this election cycle will determine the direction of the country for the next four years and likely serve as a referendum on the presidency of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
