    Elecciones presidenciales en México

    Young people elect to go back in time


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Bambimex, a recent high school graduate with dual Mexican and American citizenship, says he and his friends were disappointed that Enrique Peña Nieto was the projected winner. 'Inside ourselves we knew that Peña Nieto was going to win, but we all got kind of depressed ... we all (my friends, my family, and I) lived in the state where Peña Nieto was governor, we never liked his decisions, and we never like him as a candidate.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Today, I went to vote for my first time in my life, I am 19 years old, and I say with proud I voted for Josefina Vazquez Mota, I currently live and am studying in Texas, but I used to live for 18 years in Mexico City, today July 1st, I am a sad mexican, looks like young people forgot what our parents and grandparents lived 70 years ago... the PRI party won elections for president, and Enrique Peña Nieto would be Mexico's president. I am sad because I used to live in the state where Peña Nieto was governor, he was pretty bad, and people forgot about that, they just went today and voted for the cutest candidate. Mexico a great country, should now fight to be better everyday, 60% of mexicans who voted today, didn't elect Peña Nieto, but now we need to respect the choice of our next president. Every mexican now needs to overcome there opinions and feelings, and go out and help Mexico get better! Mexico needs every mexican now, we elected our president, but he is only one person, and this is a country of people, to make a change we, the people of Mexico need to help change our country for better. Today, we can cry, be sad, but tomorrow, we need to go out and help Mexico to be a better country, and a better place for all future generations.
