Is the NM GOP directing Dems to the wrong polling place?

Posted by: Hammer / 11:22 AM

From the AP wire in New Mexico:

The Democratic Party of New Mexico is accusing Republicans of providing voters with incorrect information on polling locations in Albuquerque in an effort to cause confusion, but the GOP calls the allegations "preposterous."

The Democrats claim they have learned of several instances in which voters have received phone messages providing incorrect polling information from people who identify themselves as workers at GOP headquarters.

The Democratic Party said in a statement issued Sunday "all voters should be warned that false information is being spread in an apparent desperate attempt to win the election through confusing and potentially illegal actions."

The party plans to seek a restraining order Monday that would prevent the GOP from contacting voters who are not registered Republicans, according to Matt Farrauto, the party's executive director.

TPM Muckraker followed up:

"I am standing in front of four people who had it happen to them, and there's a fifth woman who contacted me this morning," Farrauto told me. The group was standing in the courthouse lobby, he said, waiting to meet with a judge who could order the GOP's calls to stop.

The numbers don't matter; it's all intent. Is the GOP in NM deliberately calling registered Democrats and encouraging them to vote in the wrong place? Or is it all an accident?

This should bring tons of outraged Democrats to the polls - all of you with names ending in M-Z should vote Wednesday to avoid the long lines!
