Mexican expatriates seek voting sites in U.S.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Mexican businessmen in the U.S. are petitioning the Mexican government for voting sites here.

"Voting would be modeled after the recent Iraqi out-of-country voting, said Jose Artemio Arreola, a member of the coalition Vamos por el voto in Chicago. For example, registration and voting sites would be set up in places with at least 15,000 Mexican expatriates. Chavarria has proposed using U.S. post offices as polling sites."

"And U.S. immigration experts note that expatriates from other countries -- Australia, Ukraine and Poland, for example -- don't experience problems voting in the United States."
