New Mexico is adopting new rules to make sure all eligible voters will get their vote for the primary election.

One rule makes it easier for people who are blind to cast an absentee vote.

According to Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, the rule allows those who are blind or visually impaired cast their vote by using their own technology.

The ballot would be sent electronically to the voter.

The voters would have to certify that they’re blind before receiving an electronic ballot.
