Absentee voting in 2006

In Mexico. Given the number of Mexicans that reside in the U.S. both legally and illegally, the Mexican government has been debating since 2000 (or maybe even before) the possibility of absentee voting for Mexicans living abroad. I've heard stories of many people and personally know at least one person who travelled all the way back to Mexico from the U.S. to vote in the historic 2000 presidential elections.

According to some estimates, nearly 2 million of the 4 million Mexicans estimated to be living in the U.S. with a valid voter ID would be likely to vote in 2006 if legislators approve the proposed electoral reform.

It's not surprising, then, that Fox's party, the PAN, has opened a new office in El Paso. The first PAN office was opened at the beginning of May in Chicago, IL.
