Seriously, it's the law. It's a law we need on the books in Texas too, not to mention every other state, and it should be STRICTLY enforced.

It sounds dumb, and it is, but it's true - a way old law says idiots cannot legally vote in the land of enchantment. I kinda have a feeling no one's really enforcing this one though. Call it a hunch but, yeah ... I think the idiots are totally voting.

It's a civil rights violation if someone prohibits a legally eligible voter from voting but, if you're an idiot, apparently, it's cool.

As per the law of New Mexico, if you’re at least 21 years old, have been a resident of the state for one year, lived in the county for three months, and lived near the voting precinct for one month, you are eligible for voting.
