We the People: a State-Wide Conversation on Democracy & Elections
Sun, May 22, 2022, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM MDT.
Dark money and some media are increasing political polarization. Listen to a diverse group of panelists discuss the issues. Some politicians are falsely claiming voter fraud to justify restrictions that suppress voter turn-out. Poll-watchers are intimidating voters and election workers. NM is a leader in safe and secure elections and a model nationally. What should Congress do to ensure fair and accessible elections and voter confidence?
