Long Walk Home: US Citizens Living In Mexico Endure Hours-Long Waits To Cast Votes

Description

As if dealing with the drama of the US general election wasn't challenging enough, US citizens who live in Mexico--and want to vote--have it even worse.

On Election Day, thousands of US citizens living in Mexico crowded the international bridges to El Paso, Texas, just to cast their vote. Most waited over two hours. The international bridge between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso was also completely full. Even with COVID-related restrictions in place, the line stretched out for nearly a mile. But voters whose lives straddle the border say it's a small price to participate in an election that will have a profound impact on both countries.
