The Brazilian municipal elections of 2008 were held on October 5 and October 26.[1] Over 130 million voters will choose mayors and city councillors for the 5,565 municipalities of Brazil.[2]

Brazilian law allows candidates to run under ballot names different from their legal names. At least six candidates have chosen the ballot name "Barack Obama" [3] and some entrepreneurs use ballot names that make reference to their business.[4]
