Vote from Abroad: The 2018 Mexican Elections

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

More than 12 million Mexicans living abroad will have the opportunity to vote in the 2018 general elections. While Mexicans have been able to vote from abroad since 2005, voter turnout has been dismally low in past elections. In an effort to increase voter turnout, the National Electoral Institute (INE) is issuing voting IDs for Mexicans living abroad through the network of Mexican consulates.

We were pleased to host a discussion on the role of the INE in Mexico's electoral process and how the Mexican vote abroad could impact the outcome of the 2018 Mexican election.
