This article demonstrates that political capacity of voters in kabupaten Magelang is very low. Accordingly, general election does not always function as its philosophical framework. Despite the impresive participation of the people during the election process, voters do not fully understand that election can have an impact to their live. Many voters have not recognized that election is a political instrument. Moreover, most voters also do not have any criterion to evaluate the performance of politicans so it is posible that they use the ballot injudiciously when they vote for the local legislative candidate. As this situation exist, it is likely that local political accountability in Magelang for next five years will never appear. In long term, whitout a comprehensive program to increase the political capacity of the people, democratization process may be in danger.
