    How to register

    Mexicans living in the United States who qualify may vote in Mexico’s presidential election next summer.

    More information is available at this site.

    Millions of Mexicans living in the United States follow presidential politics back home religiously. Mexican electoral officials want immigrants to do more than that. They want them to vote.

    Mexicans living abroad have until Jan. 15 to enroll in a program through the Internet to be able to vote in next summer’s presidential election without leaving the United States.

    It’s the second time they will have a chance to vote this way.

    In 2006, the effort is largely considered to have flopped. This time around the independent agency that runs elections, the Instituto Federal Electoral (IFE), says it will do things differently to encourage the potential 4.5 million voters who reside north of the border to vote by mail.

    Still, the agency is spending less on outreach to immigrants in this cycle, though promises its effort will be more targeted.

    Last weekend, the agency held a two-day workshop in Mexico City for journalists who work in Latino media in the United States to explain how it will do so.

    So they're undocumented in two countries.

    The enrollment form will be simpler, too, only asking for the name, the state where they were born, the information on their Mexican-issued electoral credential and an address.
    Electoral credentials? For those of you who do not know what this means, it means Mexico requires Mexican citizens to present electoral identification before they can participate in the electoral process in that country.

    Mexico may be a corrupted cesspool, but even they understand the importance of verifying someone's right to vote in that country. There are many poor people in Mexico who are not “disenfranchised

    Shut down the LaRaza media before they win. See, they have drugas money and we don't stand a chance without a total disruption of their funding.
