Now they are at it again - just weeks before the election. And just like last time, legally registered voters who receive these notices can be confused into thinking they can't vote this November. What you can do...

Noted with disgust. Thanks, Nancy. One would think that she'd realize that she can't get away with her Jim Crow chicanery by now. Slow on the uptake? Or a true GOPTP believer...

Can't get away with it? Think again. Out of 186,000 voters, it's possible that convincing 100 not to vote would be enough to sway an election. Now the onus is on all of us to help as many people as we can to get the truth.

Forwarded to NM friends. Shouldn't there be a lawsuit against her or something? Oh, yeah, Martinez is governor.

"In the run up to an important election like that of November 2014, sending these purge cards to potentially eligible voters can cause confusion and can discourage voters from going to the polls."

What a complete waste of taxpayer time and money. Of course this IS just an attempt to intimidate people. I don't know of a state anywhere that requires one to vote or register to vote or re-register if you've moved until voting time is near. One can skip as many elections as one wishes and remain on the roll as long as you've not moved. The business of local officials is to tell you things like your voting place has changed. These massive mailings are costly and unneeded. If someone has moved and shows up to vote there, they'll be turned away, or in nice places, allowed to register that day through one of several perfectly reasonable mechanisms. This is just overkill and a waste of money.

I didn't realize these red states were so wealthy they could afford such unnecessary expenses. The only message her office ought be putting out is where polling places are and what one need to do to register. Anything else is out of her scope and obviously means her office is way over-funded - I hope the New Mexico legislature remedies that next session and reduces her budget to one commensurate with her actual responsibilities. Just how stupid is this? Did she really think after the last fiasco no one would be watching this time? There ought be another qualification for office - too dumb to be there. I apologize to all not intellectually gifted folks out there who just are who they are without also being snake mean.

Noted Thanks for sharing Nancy They could get a much better voting system if they allowed New Mexico to vote. And probably a more honest vote as they are not bought by the government.
