N.M. voters rolls purged 85,000 people

The Albuquerque TV news reported tonight that the voters rolls in New Mexico have been purged by 85,000 voters.
We have a GOP Mayor and GOP Governor.
We have a general election (including for Mayor, City Council, etc) in one month.

Some here may recall that I posted recently that when I phoned to get an application for an absentee ballot, I was told I am not on their voting registry, and was asked if I had ever voted in New Mexico, etc.

They suggested I come in and register.

I have voted by absentee ballot in every election here (including school board, etc) since moving to N.M. 12 years ago.
Some of you suggested I phone my elected officials.

I called my two U.S. Senators (both Democrats) and spoke with someone in their offices.
No one got back to me from the Senators, but one week after calling my Senators an application for an absentee ballot arrived in my mail box, and yesterday the absentee ballot arrived.

The City Clerk’s office miraculously found my voting info.

I wonder how many people who disappeared from the voting rolls just didn’t do anything and will not be voting?

85,000 purged voters may not be as much as some states, but N.M. is sparsely populated.

2. I once got purged from a county I had move from 12 years before.

It's usually not some conspiracy, probably a lot of those were GOPers.

3. Here in Texas my ex-wife chenge her name back, got new I.D and changed her voter registration

to reflect the change. She voted in a couple of elections with the info correct on her voter registration. The next election after Texas passed their new voter I.D. law she received her new voter I.D. card. They had changed her name back to her married name. Since her license would not match her registration she would not have been allowed to vote had she not checked it. This was no accident. She is black and has always voted Democrat.

5. This needs to be advertised across the country way before the next election so people

can check to see if they are still registered.

Maybe people who like to phone bank could get the lists and call the people themselves.
