Killer fact on Mexican election 

The opposition likes to bitch and moan about how much money Venezuelan authorities have spent buying voting machines and the like.

Presumabely they could save money if they did things the old fashion way with pencil an paper like the Mexicans do. Well, not really. In today's Wall Street Journal it was reported the budget for the Mexican electoral authority, the IFE, this year was $1.2 billion dollars. Yes, that is correct, 1.2 BILLION DOLLARS. Damn, paper and pencils must be expensive in Mexico.
