La Linea is contested by 7 parties: Otra Línea es Possible (OLEP) led by Juan Carlos Valenzuela is the only newcomer; Mayor Juan Franco is standing again as Leader of La Linea 100x100 and is also hoping to be re-elected Mayor; former Mayor Gemma Araujo leads the PSOE plus Álvaro Cuadros (Vox), Susana González (PP), Francisco Dorado (IU) and Christina Sanz (Podemos).

Voting opened at 9am and will close at 8 pm with over 35 million people eligible to vote.
