More than 100,000 people protested in Mexico City and over 100 cities against the overhaul of the country’s election watchdog, which demonstrators say could make fair and free elections difficult. The protesters, dressed in pink, the official color of the electoral watchdog, chanted “Don’t touch my vote” and attempted to send a message to the president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who backed the measures, and to the Supreme Court, which is expected to hear a challenge to the overhaul in the coming months.

The president argues that the changes will save millions of dollars and improve the voting system, while electoral officials say they will make it difficult to guarantee free and fair elections.
