Today’s Video: Patricia at the Polls

We'll return on Wednesday with several news stories from around the Americas including the aftermath of Mexico's presidential election.

For now we'll leave you with the following video of Patricia Ortiz Garcia, a young woman with a disability from Mexico City who was one of the thousands of poll workers during last Sunday's elections.

"Since I was born people told me that I would be a vegetable...but since then I said to myself 'I don't know how but I will get things done'" said Ortiz in the video from Mexican daily El Universal.
