Mexican election officials are working hard to get out the vote — in Dallas.
Not for the first time this year, they’ll be in North Texas this weekend to register Mexican citizens for that country’s July 1 presidential elections.
The stakes are high for the presidential candidates. Recent changes in laws on voting absentee means there are already about 612,000 Mexicans living abroad who have registered to vote.
The vote abroad could swing the election. In 2006, left-leaning presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador lost by only about 200,000 votes. He is running again.
