The National Electoral Institute (INE) is calling on all Mexicans living in the United States to vote in the upcoming July 1 elections.
The call comes midst the International Day of Call for Voting from Abroad from March 16 to 18. INM notes that the American cities of Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles are among those with the largest number of Mexican nationals living in the United States.
