Skip to comments.Registration drive seeks to close voting gap among Latinos (New Mexico)

A nonpartisan group in Washington, D.C., says targeted mailings that encourage voter registration are going out to 1 in 8 residents of New Mexico.
The Voter Participation Center says it will attempt to reach more than 248,000 people in the state by mail in January as part of a national campaign to reach populations that are statistically underrepresented in elections.
The effort seeks to narrow the gap between those eligible to vote and those who are registered to vote a gap that is especially pronounced among Latinos, said center founder and President Page Gardner.
New Mexico has the highest percentage of Latino residents of any state, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, estimated at well above 40 percent of the population. Young adults and single, unmarried women are another focus of the drive intended to increase overall voting.
Gardner said waves of mailings and emails are planned between now and the November general election.

Nothing in the article discusses how or if the voter registration drive is going to verify whether the person is a citizen, a legal resident with a green card or illegal alien. However the article says New Mexico requires the last four digits of a Social Security number, but of course they could just as easily put the last four digits of their phone number on the form.
Stand by for massive voter fraud.

You'll find a 'Register To Vote' stand run by a 'non-partisan' group (wink wink).
They pass out registration forms like condoms in public high schools.
You could probably get some fascinating audio and video if you hang around these booths for awhile.
Maybe Project Veritas could consider volunteering at such events.
