It's election day in Coahuila, and El Siglo reports that the PRI is paying 500 pesos for the promise to vote for their man in the poorer colonias of the city. The PAN's strategy is allegedly to pay from 500 to 1,500 pesos for the electoral ID of known PRI voters, so as to drive down their opponents' total while simultaneously fraudulently voting for the PAN candidate with rented ID. Frustratingly, all of the information in the article is from anonymous sources, so a grain of salt is in order.
