Further Details
Abstract Mexicans have recently acquired a new tool for understanding our elections: national political party membership rosters. Evidence shows, however, that, for all practical purposes, no correlation exists between party affiliation and how voters actually behave at the polls. A review of the vast amount of publically-available data makes it possible to suggest reforms that would simplify and make universally available individual, egalitarian methods of affiliation to political parties. Modern politics demands ensuring that people be able to freely affiliate to these organizations in the public interest.
