Vox er et spansk politisk parti, grunnlagt i 2013. Partiet ble stiftet av utbrytere fra det konservative Partido Popular (PP). Vox går inn for en sterk enhetsstat i Spania, og avviser dermed det eksisterende system med autonome regioner.[2]

Partiet hører til ytre høyre i Spania[3][4][5] og omtales som høyrepopulistisk[6][7], neo-Francoist, reaksjonært, høyreekstremt[1][8][9][10][11][12] og antifeministisk.[13] I 2018 uttalte daværende partileder i Andalucia, Francisco Serrano, blant annet at Spania under Franco ikke hadde vært noe diktatur.[2] Spania har ikke hatt noe ytre-høyre parti på lenge.[11]

Partiet stilte første gang til valg ved Europaparlamentvalget i 2014, men oppnådde ikke representasjon i parlamentet. Høsten 2017 hadde partiet sterk vekst i etterkant av krisen i forbindelse med Catalonias avstemning om løsrivelse og terrorangrepet i Barcelona.

I september 2018 fikk partiet sin første regionparlamentrepresentant for Extremadura da en uavhengig representant som tidligere hadde gått ut av PP gikk over til partiet.[14] I desember 2018 fikk de inn tolv representanter til det andalusiske regionparlamentet. Dermed fikk Vox første representant til Spanias senat.[15]

I Europaparlamentet tilhører partiet Vox Gruppen af Europæiske Konservative og Reformister.[16]
