Mexico's 2006 Election and Expatriate Voting

Fine article by Maite Salazar.

It is the best and more comprehensive story yet on expatriate voting by Mexicans living abroad (primarily in the United States). It looks like individuals may be charged for the costs of administering the absentee ballot; that millons will be unable to vote because they are not currently registered (and have to return to Mexico to register); and that Mexicans will have to return ballots by certified mail.

There is also a citation to some scholarship on expatriate voting coming out of Harvard and UCSD.
