Abstract

The practice of empty boxes that occurred in the Pilkada shows the effectiveness of the regulations that govern it. In the Pilkada Law, this practice is allowed because only one candidate exists. Existing studies still focus on empty boxes as issues of law, democracy, politics, culture, and sociology. This study takes another side that has not been widely studied, where the practice of empty boxes against a single candidate is seen from the perspective of its legal effect, which is based on the rule of law, and sociological and psychological factors of the voting community. The study of documents and literature are used to build analysis, as shown in this paper. The data is grouped and then analyzed to explain the practice of empty boxes in the Pilkada. This study clearly shows the effectiveness of the law governing the practice of empty boxes in the Pilkada. In other words, every election period during the pre-covid-19 pandemic increased, and there was one victory for the empty box, based on sociological, psychological factors, and community social movements. In the future, political literacy for the wider community needs to be carried out by emphasizing awareness of the importance of Pilkada and for parties of the importance of cadres to produce new leader candidates so that people do not have to deal with empty boxes even though the practice has a legitimate legal basis
