World Mexico Mexicans are voting today in the biggest election in their country’s history. More than 18,000 positions are up for grabs at the local and federal levels, however the campaign trail has been marred by violence, ballot tampering and attempts to influence public opinion with “fake news.” Gangs and cartels have sought to maintain their grip throughout the country by killing adversarial politicians, stealing and burning ballots and threatening those who take a stand against their control.
