Mexico Living – The 2012 Mexico Elections

If you are an expat living in Mexico, it’s important to know your place in Mexico’s political matters while you are Mexico living.

The first and most important note of your rights in policy or politics in Mexico, as an expat, is that you do not possess the rights of a citizen or national if you were not born in Mexico or have not acquired Mexican citizenship. Even if you are registered as a permanent resident, you may not partake in any elections, demonstrations or publicly voice your likes or dislikes at any public meeting that addresses Mexico politics or policy of any kind.  If you defy these rules, you are subject to imprisonment for illegal demonstration.

As an expat who is retired,  you do have the benefits of receiving health care from Mexico’s social medical health network.  Your inability to vote, however, means you will be a resident of a country where you cannot take a stance in its future.

So why this article about politics in Mexico?
