Third Federal Electoral District of Nayarit

The Third Federal Electoral District of Nayarit (III Distrito Electoral Federal de Nayarit) is one of the 300 Electoral Districts into which Mexico is divided for the purpose of elections to the federal Chamber of Deputies and one of three such districts in the state of Nayarit.

It elects one deputy to the lower house of Congress for each three-year legislative period, by means of the first past the post system.

District territory

Nayarit's Third District is located in the south of the state and covers the municipalities of Ahuacatlán, Amatlán de Cañas, Bahía de Banderas, Compostela, Ixtlán del Río, Jala, San Blas, San Pedro Lagunillas, Santa María del Oro, Xalisco and La Yesca.[1]

The district's head town (cabecera distrital), where results from individual polling stations are gathered together and collated, is the city of Compostela.

The Third District was created by the 1979 re-districting process; prior to that, Nayarit returned only two deputies to Congress.

Between 1996 and 2005 the Third District had the same composition as at present, with the exception of the municipality of La Yesca, which belonged to Nayarit's Second District.[2]
