Expat voters

Fewer expat Jaliscienses will be voting in this election, with only 5,534 citizens of Jalisco who reside outside the country  – mainly in the United States – having registered to vote compared with 16,507 in the 2018 presidential election (although only 8,500 actually voted). 

Nationally, 33,698 overseas citizens have registered to vote in the June 6 election, according to the National Electoral Institute (INE).

Costly elections

The 12 political parties with  candidates running in Jalisco’s elections have spent around $US5.3 million during the 60-day campaign, using both publicly allocated funds and permitted resources obtained privately.

Maintaining order

Some 22,000 security elements will be on standby to maintain the peace in Jalisco during Election Day on Sunday, June 6, Ricardo Sánchez Beruben, the head of the state government’s security cabinet has confirmed. The security detail includes officers from municipal and state police forces, the National Guard and the Mexican Army, he said.
