DPNM Statement on Signing of Election Reform Bill

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today signed a bill to allow counties and tribal governments greater flexibility while determining how best to conduct an election during a global pandemic. The reforms include a provision that gives tribal governments the final say before a local polling place can be closed or consolidated, as well as provisions allowing counties to conduct elections by mail. 

DPNM Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement regarding election reform bills: 

“Once again, Democrats are rising to the challenges presented by these unprecedented times. This election bill is an important step toward ensuring that each county or tribal government can determine how best to run elections during a pandemic. While Republicans have publicly worried about how increased access to the ballot could hurt their chances in November, Democrats are moving forward with smart solutions to allow as many people as possible to safely exercise their right to vote.”
