Could California residents play a role in Mexico’s historic July 1 election?
Catalina Sánchez, a 36-year-old graphic designer who lives in Poway, certainly intends to — without ever leaving San Diego County.
Like Sánchez, a record number of Mexicans living abroad are preparing to vote in this presidential contest playing out amid uncertainty over the future of U.S-Mexico relations.
These voters will not only help choose a new president to lead Mexico for the next six years but also for the first time participate in Senate elections and in six states, choose new governors. Also for the first time, those from Mexico City will be able to cast ballots from abroad in the capital’s mayoral contest.
