After my previous puzzle went from 2 to 4 stars difficulty I felt I owed an actual 2 stars to the valiant solvers who expected one and still plowed through (and many thanks to everybody by the way)! This one should definitely be easier, while still requiring some thinking. :) Hope you enjoy!

RULES: Vote fo… I mean:

- Normal sudoku rules apply
- Digits along arrows must sum to the number in the circle
- Bold lines are palindromes and thus must read the same in either direction
- Palindrome 1: R4C3 to R5C4 (2 cells); Palindrome 2: R8C5 to R6C7 by way of R6C5 (5 cells); Palindrome 3: R7C6 to R8C7 (2 cells)
- Cells connected by a V must sum up to 5; cells connected by an X must sum up to 10
- No negative constraint on any component

Once again, what a great puzzle! Extremely fun and well constructed... incredibly smooth, but still "puzzling"... really like the break in! Thank you again, for the awesome puzzle!

A solid puzzle with an excellent break in. My only complaint would be the difficulty in seeing the 5-length palindrome, but that's a software thing and not a fault of the puzzle. Rated "very nice"!
..............
Thank you so much! Yeah about that palindrome, I really took a chance. I tried using Penpa to have a colored line that would be visible over the circle, but I don't think Penpa has the XV function? Anyhow, thank you again for your comment and rating, much appreciated! :D

again a very nice mechanics, this time much easier but still beautiful, 2 stars indeed (and this time also secured by half the difficulty solution code), thanks for the puzzle again.
.................
And many thanks again to you for the solve and the kind words! :D

I am very curious about the meaning of "ote for pedro" in the puzzle, although I get its meaning through translation software
..........
Haha, 'Vote for Pedro' is just a silly reference to a silly movie, it has no effect on the puzzle. I realized it was too obscure and took it out of the title :)

(clarified palindromes' positions)

Appreciate a true 2-star. Is nice change of pace for a beginner like me

No... I would say its 2 stars. I would just clarify your comment on "main palindrome "includes the circle in R6C5"
I thought that meant a palindrome from r4c3 to r8c7. Took me a while to realize that was 2 palindromes. I didn't see that the "main" palindrome bent at a 90 degree angle.
...............
I changed the wording for clarity -- thank you!

Took me a while to figure out how those palindromes worked...
..............
Would you say it's (again...) harder than 2 stars?... There's definitely more XV clues I could add
In any case, thank you for solving and commenting, much appreciated! :)
