Help!: Sudden New Mexico Voter Purge
Last edited Sat Aug 11, 2012, 08:39 PM - Edit history (1)
This is just cruel. Instead of producing more voter registration cards--They devoted their resources to voter purge mail-outs. 250,000 - 600,000 unregistered voters multiplied by this 177,000 voter purge is huge when you consider that New Mexico, in 2011, had only 1,427,493 people who were eligible to register to vote.
Don't let a solid blue state fall into GOP hands!
Wrote a blog on it with all the sources at http://derekstevens01.blogspot.com/2012/08/help-sudden-new-mexico-voter-purge.html
If you are registered in New Mexico: Go to https://voterview.state.nm.us/VoterView/RegistrantSearch.do

10. Could not find mine in Ohio either
until I noticed that only the name of the street is required. When I used only the street name and removed "Lane" my registration status was listed correctly. Do not use Street, Lane, Avenue, etc. Just the street name.

4. Corrected New Mexico voter link
The above link for checking registration in NM is slightly in error. The following should work (the other just missing the s in https) but you might have to do a cut and paste to get there as there appears to be something in posting software that scrubs the s out if you direct link from the post

7. Can't tell you how to avoid
what happened. I did a cut and paste from the link at nmgov like you probably did but when it posted on the message it stripped out the s too. I then tested the link by clicking on it and realized the difference when it too didn't work. It appears that any posting with a link to a "secure" web page like a "https" vs "http" won't work in posts (or is changed when one extracts the web link in the first place). The only suggestion I have is to test the link and if it doesn't work as planned then put it into the quotes, like I did, and tell people to just cut and paste into their browser. By the way, I checked my and my wifes status in NM and we are still listed as "active". Thanks for the heads up on this one.
