NM: Secretary of State Works to Assure Accurate Voter File
Last Updated on Tuesday, 28 June 2011 01:07 Written by rslcpol Tuesday, 28 June 2011 01:07
Secretary of State Dianna Duran recently sent 64,000 names of registered voters to state police for investigation. But she said Monday that she doesn’t consider those files to be potential voter-fraud cases.
“Don’t use the words voter fraud, ” Duran said in an interview Monday. “I’m just trying to assure the accuracy of our voter files. … It’s not a fishing expedition. It’s not a witch hunt.”
Since the state police investigation became known earlier this month, Duran has been the object of criticism by some Democrats.
Duran said the files handed over to the Department of Public Safety were “questionable” cases in which information such as names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth on the voter list didn’t match up with information on Motor Vehicle Division files.
