State to offer more voter registration

It was supposed to be that whenever you visit the state's MVD you could easily register to vote. But that wasn't happening, a coalition of voting rights groups that sued the state said.

Under a just released settlement agreement, the state will have a point person to deal with voter registration. Here is the news release from the groups, which include Project Vote.

See the settlement agreement below.

  1. Apparently ACORN was originally involved in this lawsuit before they shut down operations in NM. I wonder if this fact will affect how people view this lawsuit. And I wonder if this new "point person" will become just another cog in the political machine here.
