Mexico City: A man lobbed a severed human head at a voting station in the border city of Tijuana and plastic bags filled with body parts were found nearby, authorities said, as Mexicans voted in the country’s largest elections in history.

Authorities said the man ran away, but they did not specify whether he was captured. They said they found plastic bags with human remains and severed hands in the area.

It was not immediately clear what message the gruesome act was meant to send and how it related to the election held on Sunday (Monday AEST).

The campaign for MPs and state authorities has been one of the bloodiest in recent history. Security consultancy Etellekt said 97 politicians had been killed and 935 attacked.

Elsewhere on voting day, someone threw an inactive grenade into a voting station in Mexico state, authorities said. One voter, who asked not to be named, said the crowd dispersed but then returned.

“People said that they would vote, and that they would not be intimidated,” the woman said, adding that she had cast her ballot. “It was ugly.”
