Event

A national referendum is taking place October 25-28 in Mexico to decide the fate of a controversial new airport under construction in Texcoco, near the capital Mexico City. The voting has already been marred by technical issues, including claims that it is possible for each person to cast more than one ballot. Associated protests regarding the referendum process or the airport’s construction are possible.

Context

Voters are deciding whether to continue construction on the new airport or to abandon it and refurbish two other nearby airports. The vote, called for by President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), is not legally binding.

Advice

Individuals in Mexico are advised to avoid polling stations and any protests as a precaution.
