NM Bill for Automatic Voter Registration

New Mexico State Senator Daniel Ivey-Soto (D-15th District) has introduced SJR 5. It provides that all Adult Citizens known to Exist would Automatically be Registered to Vote, unless they Decline.

Every person who is a qualified elector pursuant to the constitution and laws of the United States and a citizen thereof shall be qualified to vote in all elections in New Mexico, subject to residency and registration requirements provided by law, except as restricted by statute either by reason of criminal conviction for a felony or by reason of mental incapacity, being limited only to those persons who are unable to mark their ballot and who are concurrently also unable to communicate their voting preference.

The amendment proposed by this resolution shall be submitted to the people for their approval or rejection at the next general election or at any special
election prior to that date that may be called for that purpose.
