NM voters voice complaints over election

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — New Mexico lawmakers were bombarded with complaints from frustrated voters who pointed out issues in November’s general election.
The meeting, held Saturday in Santa Fe, was a chance for voters to voice their concerns with state lawmakers.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the complaints heard ranged from long waits at polling locations, a limited number of voting machines and a lack of Spanish-speaking translators.
Some people at the meeting said they waited at least three hours in lines.
They also said there was little guidance from signage or Spanish-language documents.
The committee is expected to pass along the testimony to Secretary of State Dianna Duran’s office.
