‘There’s a bigger family: the Costa Rican family’

March 31, 2018

On Costa Rica’s Election Day on Feb. 4, our team captured the sights and sounds of the voting experience, from dawn to dusk, and asked voters of all ages what drove them to cast their ballot that day.

Now that the runoff election is upon us: what will motivate you to make the trip to the polls on Sunday?

Why will you vote on April 1st?

With just 10 days until the elections, these Costa Rican voters have a message for you. Music by Manuel Obregon. #Salgaavotar #EleccionesCR #CostaRica
