LOS ANGELES — With early voting underway for the June 2 presidential election in Mexico, Mexicans in the U.S. are gearing up to participate in one of the most significant national elections in Mexico’s recent history. 

This year, for the first time in history, Mexicans outside the country can vote in one of three ways: a mail in ballot, electronic voting or in person at one of 20 consulate offices in California.

Thousands of Angelenos that registered to vote in the election could elect the country’s first female president, and many are excited to have their voices heard.
