The heads of the Foreign Ministry and the National Electoral Institute (INE) signed an agreement to issue voter registration cards to Mexicans living abroad.

After over a year of working together, the INE and the Foreign Ministry have agreed to begin the process of issuing voter registration cards to Mexican citizens living abroad, in compliance with the Mexican General Law of Institutions and Electoral Procedures of our country.


The agreement is one more step toward guaranteeing that Mexicans born in another country or who, for whatever reason, had to leave ours, can exercise their political rights, especially the right to vote. Voting by Mexicans abroad is a big step towards the democratic consolidation of our country.
