SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A state official says a review of election records has found several hundred dead New Mexicans remain on voter registration rolls.
Ken Ortiz, chief of staff for Secretary of State Dianna Duran, said Wednesday that information will be part of a report to the Legislature on preliminary findings of a review of voter registration records. He said 641 dead people have been identified on voter rolls.
The report may be released as early as Thursday.
Duran has told county clerks that some people are being asked to complete new registration applications because of possible irregularities in their voter information.
Her office notified the attorney general that two foreign nationals living legally in the country have voluntarily said they were registered voters. One has voted in elections since 1998.

This report is being dismissed as insignificent wrongly by the media. The investigation was massively crippled by democrats in the legislature and by court actions by the democratic party to impede it.
