This week the radical left of the New Mexico Senate is trying to pass Senate Bill 8, a bill that threatens to undermine our voting and election process.
If passed, SB 8 will:
- Create a permanent absentee voter system, allowing opportunity for voter fraud
- Add felons to the eligible voter rolls
- Allow for same-day voter registration, with less opportunity to verify voter eligibility
No matter what party affiliation one may be, everyone can agree that making New Mexico vulnerable to fraud in the election process is unacceptable.
In a time when trust in the election process is waning, we should be working to bring unity to our state. Sen. Gregg Schmedes, who is currently working with fellow legislators to block this bill says, “SB 8 potentially delegitimizes our election process and opens up our elections to voter fraud unnecessarily.” An undermined election process is a divisive act that will only serve as a detriment to New Mexico.
