Democrats Abroad Mexico City (DACDMX) trained 13 people on August 14 in an event held at the American Legion. The newly trained volunteers will now fan out across Mexico City in an effort to register U.S. citizens for the November 8 general election. About half of the new volunteers hold joint U.S./Mexican citizenship.
DACDMX will set up booths in public places such as parks and commercial centers throughout Mexico City to attract potential new voters. The volunteers will also assist existing voters in requesting absentee ballots and returning those ballots to election officials in the U.S.
It has been estimated that there are up to 1 million U.S. citizens living in Mexico with half of them holding dual nationality. Registration efforts will continue until October.
DACDMX plans to hold additional voter registration training sessions. The sessions are open to the general public.
