Mexicans see security as primary concern

With elections looming, fears grow that drug violence could discourage people from casting their votes.

    With less than a year until Mexico holds presidential elections, concerns are growing that violence related to the country's drug war could discourage people from casting their votes.

    There are similar fears in the western state of Michoacan, where an election will be held on Sunday to choose a new governor.

    Security is a major concern for the residents of this state, where killings are on the rise.
