This study departs from the researchers' curiosity related to the motives of Muslim voters in seeing presidential candidates. Many reasons and the background of a voter to elect a president who is deemed worthy of leading Indonesia. Before choosing and deciding on a choice, voters will usually get information from other people, mass media, and social media, but the problem is that many voters only look at the candidates in a fundamental way and from the outside. Ideally, there is a lot to be considered and known so that a voter gets the right information. Furthermore, by looking at the candidates to be selected in detail, voters can get to know more deeply, and mistakes in choosing potential candidates can be minimized. This study focuses on the motives of Muslim voters by using motive theory to sharpen the analysis of Muslim voter motives in determining the presidential candidate to be elected. In addition to interviews and observations, questionnaires are also a data collection tool. The results of the study found that the primary motive for Muslim voters to choose Jokowi-Ma’aruf is because they love the small people. Furthermore, the reasons are wise, intelligent, and straightforward. The symbol of the success of infrastructure development during Jokowi's previous leadership also influenced Muslim voters to choose this pair.Meanwhile, the motive of Muslim voters towards the Prabowo-Sandi candidate is that they are considered to have a firm, authoritative, and robust character. Then the voters are interested in the vision and mission of the couple, then because the couple has the support of the scholars, people, and from the military.   Keywords:Motives; Muslim; Election.
