ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The New Mexico Secretary of State and the state’s Attorney General’s Office will provide additional staff at polling locations for the state’s primary.
Secretary of State Brad Winter and Attorney General Hector Balderas announced Monday the extra staff will work to ensure proper conduct at polling locations around the state.
The Attorney General’s Office, however, will be dispatching “special agents” to monitor polling locations.
Under state law, the Secretary of State can ask the Attorney General’s Office to assign investigators and lawyers to polling sites.
The move comes after the U.S. Department of Justice announced last week the department would not send monitors to polling locations in New Mexico.
The state’s primary is Tuesday.
