ACORN, a voter registration group that has operated in New Mexico and other states during the last several election cycles, is being flagged by the state GOP.
On Friday, the Las Cruces office of the purportedly non-partisan ACORN was broken into and 90 completed voter registration forms were stolen.
The forms had voters’ social security numbers and dates of birth on them, according to a news release by New Mexico GOP Executive Director Adam Feldman.
In May, ahead of New Mexico’s June primary election, the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office received a number of complaints about ACORN workers falsely telling individuals that they needed to re-register to vote in order to take part in the primary election.
The clerk’s office issued a statement that deterred Doña Ana County residents from registering with ACORN, Feldman stated in his release.
“At this point, we are also asking New Mexicans to be cautious about registering to vote with ACORN employees,” he said. “Voters who would like to register to vote would be better served by contacting their county or state Republican or Democratic parties, or their county clerk.
