Calderon or Obrador?

Could voting by the civic minded illegal expats make a difference?

For the first time, Mexico's presidential election was open to Mexican nationals and dual citizens living abroad... But only about 41,000, or 1 percent, of the estimated 4.2 million eligible Mexican voters living outside the country requested absentee ballots. Almost 88 percent of the 32,632 valid absentee ballots mailed to Mexico's Federal Electoral Institute were from the United States. -The Washington Post
