This gets interesting -- according to the Institute on Money in State Politics website, Ms. Vigil-Giron's 6th largest campaign contributor in 2002 was one Ken Carbullido, vice president of Election Systems and Software (ES&S)...

Rebecca Vigil-Giron is a Democrat, and other major campaign contributors include the New Mexico Federation of Labor.

I remember posting the other day that ES&S is a "sustaining member" of New Mexico's Association of Counties, when we were asked to research the software company that did the programming for the election, Automated Election Services aka Ink Impressions.
