NM clerks seek emergency court action to move primary to all mail

Twenty-seven New Mexico county clerks sent an emergency petition Monday to the state Supreme Court, asking for an order to conduct the June primary election by mail to prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus. The clerks said it would be impossible to carry out a normal election during the pandemic and that to do so would “violate their oath of office in order to protect the health and safety of their community.” Michel Gerstein, Jens Gould, Santa Fe New Mexican.
