Mexican President Felipe Calderón Goes to Polling Booth to Vote

Calderon votingSunday, July 5, 2009

Good morning everyone.

I would simply like to repeat what was said by the President Councilor of the Federal Electoral Institute.

Today is citizens’ day, it is the day of civic participation, when Mexicans decide the fate of their country.

The vote is a right and a duty; a right and a duty that millions of citizens throughout the world in various countries do not have. And I think we should take advantage of it, fulfill our duty to vote, decide and choose with absolute freedom.

It is a very simple thing we can do for Mexico and which we must do.

I hope that the day continues to go by, peacefully and calmly, with complete freedom for citizens.

Thank you.
