The thing that seems to be happening with this election is that people are more than willing to just let votes slip through the cracks. Things didn’t use to be this way.

My grandmother used to tell me a story about how when she worked at a bank in the 1940s that if they were off on their counting by so much as a penny than they had to sit there and figure out where it went.

If that bank was around today, they would probably let them be off by $10,000 and not bat an eye about it.

The New Mexico GOP has filed a lawsuit in the Second Judicial District Court requesting that all ballots from the 2020 election in Bernalillo County be impounded.

The Republican Party of New Mexico asked Congressional candidate Michelle Garcia Holmes to submit the petition, as the law of the state allows candidates the right to “have authorities impound tally sheets, registration certificates, paper ballots, absentee ballots, statements of canvass, absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot registers,” according to the RPNM.

Holmes and the GOP want to have all of the ballots checked, and are asking the Court to examine the attributes of the ballots cast in the recent election.

According to the lawsuit, they are asking the court to impound ballots in 70 Election Day voting centers, 17 early alternative voting locations, and 88 absentee voter precincts.

“There are questions that still persist in this election that involve election integrity, and we must look closely at what happened here in New Mexico,” said Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico, Steve Pearce.

The New Mexico GOP financed the lawsuit, and is reportedly considering requesting to have ballots impounded in other counties within the state.

Many on the right are concerned about the unprecedented level of mail-in voting that occurred in the state, which saw a record high of 928,230 ballots cast.
