The U.S. ambassador to Mexico is urging Americans living south of the border to register and vote in the November presidential and congressional elections.

“Time is short,” Ambassador Antonio O. Garza Jr. said on the U.S. Embassy’s Web site ( He added that different states have different voter registration requirements, but most states will keep their voter books open until 30 days before an election.

“Participation in our great democracy is a sacred trust,” he said. “Of course, with the privilege of voting in the U.S. election also comes an awesome responsibility: to be well informed and know where the candidates state on issues that are important to you and to our great country.”
