Young Dems of NM Calling into Question Republican Petitions for Candidates

Young Democrats to question signatures on republican petitions. Are the republicans playing loss and wild or are they playing fair when it comes to the petitions they are turning in to the secretary of states office to get their candidates on the ballot? Do they care if voters met the requirements to be allowed to sign a petition or are the republicans just looking for warm bodies.

With the Secretary of States Office having limited funds to check petitions are the republicans running for office taking advantage of that fact to knowingly hand in false signatures? It would appear that they may be facing some serious legal challenges if the young democrats find false or illegal signatures on those petitions.

The young democrats are calling on their membership to check signatures by volunteering time to check petitions. This is a matter of keeping the system honest and above board so that candidates are being held accountable to the process and the state laws.
