Mexico held its mid-term elections on June 7th, 2015.

This election completely replaced the entire 500 seat Cámara de Diputados (Mexican equivalent of our House of Representatives) with completely new representatives.  The new representatives are to take office on September 1st.

The Mexican Senate was not up for a vote in this mid-term, as all its members were elected three years ago and the Senate has six-year terms, all beginning and ending together.

Besides the Cámara de Diputados elections, there were gubernatorial elections in nine states, elections for state legislatures in 17 states, and elections for mayors in 300 municipios.
