If you're traveling, in transit, or have any other situation which prevents you from voting at your designated polling station next July 1, you'll still be able to do so from one of the special polling stations the INE will make available.

According to the guidelines approved by the National Electoral Institute (INE), special polling stations will be installed at hospitals and other locations so citizens are able to vote, just showing their valid voter's card.

Each special polling station will have 750 ballots so citizens outside their region are able to exercise their right to vote and participate in the 2018 General Election process.

The main ballots available will the presidential ones yet depending on the area, it might be possible to vote for other offices as well, such as for Mexican legislators running for Congress.

These special polling stations will open from 8:00 to 18:00 hours on election day, yet they might close earlier if they've run out of ballots.

In Mexico City, there will be 22 of these polling stations across the 16 boroughs.

For more information on these special polling stations, please check the website (in Spanish).
