We are less than a week away from the first-round vote and the polling already indicates that the October 26 runoff will between the two leading women of Brazilian politics—Marina Silva and Dilma Rousseff. But, just because the outcome is probably known, it doesn’t mean there aren’t questions: How close are the first-round results?  Will the votes of the likely third-place finisher, Aécio Neves, be transferable?  Who will win the second round?  Join us by conference call the day after the vote to dissect Brazil's electoral results. Three insightful Brazilians will dissect the election results and look ahead to what they mean. 

Meanwhile, check out the pre-election analysis in our September 30 release of Spotlight Brazil.
