La Credencial de Elector del Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE) is the most widely used form of identification in Mexico as opposed to the "Matrícula Consular," which is given to Mexican citizens in the U.S. and is not recognized as an official identification in Mexico. This identification card also allows Mexican citizens living abroad to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming 2018 presidential elections in Mexico.
The California-Mexico Studies Center requires all Mexican-born participants of our Summer 2017 California-Mexico Dreamers Study Abroad Program to attain their INE I.D. Card before studying in Mexico.
