Lawmakers Push Back On Governor-Supported Election Reform Bill That Would Have Allowed Vote-By-Mail In November

Sensible Revision Assures Continued Protections Against Voting Violations

Albuquerque, June 19–Last night left-leaning Democrats tried to push an election reform bill through that would have again threatened the integrity of our November election. The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Daniel Ivey-Soto, three other Democrats and supported by the governor, would have allowed County Clerks to send vote-by-mail (VBM) ballots to constituents. But Sen. Cliff Pirtle (R-Roswell) proposed an amendment to SB-4 that removed this key provision from the bill. Under the revised legislation, voters must continue to apply for absentee ballots, which have true protections and tracking procedures.
