I haven't changed my game," he admits. Joseph F. Sequera has also opted to return to trust in the same party: "I have thought about It until the last moment because, as of today, I feel that no political party represents me. I've had an intense internal conflict. I got to ask to cast a blank ballot, but I think that was not the solution." Both stories put a face to the 25% of andalusian undecided with the one that started a campaign that is living a election day is quiet and practically without incidents, except for the delay of up to two hours in the colleges of Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz) by the lack of ballots of Equo.

The elections, whose participation at 14.00 is 29.9%, four points less than in 2015, progress as normal and quiet after the delay in the schools of Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cádiz) by the lack of ballots of Equo.
