Release of the New Mexico 2010 Election Administration Report

Today we released our 2010 New Mexico Election Administration report authored by myself, R. Michael Alvarez, Lisa Bryant and Alex Adams (both PhD students at the University of New Mexico). The report is publicly available here.

The 2010 study is a continuation of our examination of the election landscape in New Mexico. This is the 3rd report in a series that we began, along with Thad Hall, in 2006. The report uses qualitative and quantitative data to examine election administration in New Mexico. It provides administrative and legislative recommendations for New Mexico, but also has information that will be helpful to other states interested in improving their election process. The report focuses on evaluating the election through Election Day observations, an assessment of poll worker training, and a survey of poll workers and voters.
