Mexicans will head to the polls on July 1 for national and local elections, picking senators, governors and a new president.

More than 3.5 million people will be casting their ballots for the first time. The so-called youth vote for those aged 18 to 29 makes up more than 20 per cent of the electorate.

If voter turnout is high, it could have an impact on the election. However, nearly half of voters in that age group are still undecided, according to a recent academic study.

Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports on how the youth vote could play a big role in deciding the next president of Mexico.
