CORREA ALCANTAR, Manlio César  and  ROCHA ROMERO, David. Demystifying the vote of Mexicans abroad: challenges, lack of will and other scenarios. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.44, pp.195-217. ISSN 0188-7653.

In 2006, the Pew Hispanic Center found that only a third of Mexican immigrants had voting credentials. Six years later, a survey to sixty eight Mexican migrants in Southern California found similar results. In fourteen years since the conception of the expatriate vote strategies based on calculations and estimates that resulted in postal vote have not been entirely accurate, despite the existence of a propitious scenario. This article points fare to several ways in which this scenario can be taken advantage of.
