SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Secretary of State’s office has launched a new website aimed to crack down on election misinformation. The Rumors vs. Reality page addresses concerns over voter secrecy and integrity, saying ballots remain private, even to election workers.
It also states counting machines are not connected to the internet and the election officials do a mandatory audit to double-check the counts. The SOS says with the primary election one week away, voters should be on the lookout for misinformation.
