A New Mexico Attorney is Suing the State Alleging They Discriminated Against Independent Voters

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- An Albuquerque attorney is accusing New Mexico officials of discriminating against independent voters and candidates.

In the lawsuit, attorney Ken Stalter claims the current Special Congressional Election process is unconstitutional because it favors Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians.

According to the 12-page lawsuit, independent voters “face a significantly more daunting path to ballot access: these candidates must collect signatures from more than 6,000 registered voters. This system unconstitutionally discriminates against independent candidates and voters.”

The lawsuit requests declaratory judgment ahead of the presumed special election to fill the seat of Congresswoman Deb Halaand after she is confirmed as United States Secretary of Interior for the Biden-Harris Administration.
