House passes election reform bill

Legislature

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – An election reform bill gets House approval after hitting some turbulence.

The bill allows county clerks to mail absentee applications to voters while adding barcodes to ballots for better tracking and adding more time to request an absentee ballot. The changes will expire after the 2020 general election.

Initially, lawmakers rejected the bill but after a re-vote, it got the go-ahead. It now heads to the governor’s desk.
