The Libertarian Party of New Mexico replaced its secretary of state candidate Sandra Jeff with Ginger Grider, of Portales, a known Libertarian Party activist and an advocate for medical marijuana and voting-rights issues. 

According to LPNM’s chairman, Chris Luchini, Jeff left to pursue a position with the Navajo Nation. 

Luchini said Grider was chosen because of her familiarity with the straight-party ticket voting issue. 

Last week, the LPNM, the Republican Party of New Mexico, a state Democratic write-in candidate for the 46th District and others challenged New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver in New Mexico Supreme Court to prevent her from creating ballots to allow for straight-ticket voting. 

“She is very active in ballot access issues as well as a lot of the other issues Libertarians are interested in,” Luchini said of Grider.

Luchini also said Grider is knowledgeable about New Mexico party status law. 

According to Luchini, Toulouse Oliver is threatening to take New Mexico Libertarian’s major party status away because the party no longer has a gubernatorial candidate on the ticket for this election.
