The League of Women Voters of New Mexico sued when the secretary of state, on the advice of the attorney general, wasn’t going to allow improperly marked ballots a chance to be counted.
The state Supreme Court issued an order Wednesday in the leagues favor, optimizing the chances for ballots to be counted when voters don’t mark them properly.
Los Alamos resident Katherine Campbell is president of the League of Women Voters of New Mexico.
“We are very pleased the court has accepted our arguments and the maximum number of votes will be counted in the upcoming election,” she said.
Another Los Alamos League member, Voter Services Chair Becky Shankland, said this morning that the is always glad to see that all possible votes are counted.
“We’re very pleased with the comments from the Supreme Court and that the secretary of state’s office is supporting the court’s decision,” Shankland said.
The high court upheld the constitutionality of a section of state law that says a vote must be counted if election judges in a precinct unanimously agree on what the voter's intent was.
