VASQUEZ FERIA, Alim Getze Mani Eden. Political expectations of young abstentionists. The case of the X federal electoral district of Veracruz, Mexico. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.44, pp.151-170.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 0797-5538.

In the present text we present the results of the lexometric analysis performed on 131 answers to the question ‘Why would you vote?’, Which was part of a questionnaire applied to the same number of young electoral abstentions of the tenth federal electoral district, located in the City of Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. The objective was to explore their expectations around politicians and politics. Although it does not deepen the subjective dimensions, the results indicate the existence of different types of expectations, varying lexical worlds and the use of particular words by groups for schooling or occupation. The data is part of a larger quantitative investigation, which aimed to capture the social representation of the vote of electoral abstinence young voters.

Keywords : young; expectations; electoral abstention; lexical world; lexicometry.
