The essay proposes a complementary and alternative reading of the political act par excellence
of contemporary democracy: the electoral process. It involves observing beyond mere procedure
of formal renewal of the political power to highlight social factors come into play in
the electoral processes during the campaign and impacting the formation of the social order
to establish itself as a reflective time of society, reinterpretation of political experience and
configuration of new horizons.
