In recent days, President Trump has been urging the nation to pay attention and “fight very hard” against state-wide mail-in voting, which Democrats are using to sway elections in their favor across the nation.
During President Trump’s Tuesday press conference, he said, “Well, there’s a big difference between somebody that’s out of state and does a ballot and everything’s sealed, certified and everything else. You see what you have to do with the certifications.” He also reaffirmed his call, warning of “thousands of people sitting in somebody’s living room signing ballots.”
New Mexico is ground zero for voter fraud, as our Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver refuses to clean the voter rolls of illegitimate voters, and she has repeatedly claimed falsely that there is no fraudulent voting in the Land of Enchantment. In 2018, she bashed President Trump on his concerns of voter fraud, saying, “There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud anywhere in New Mexico or the United States, and when it does occur it is prosecuted swiftly and vigorously.”
In 2018, despite exit polls showing Republican state Rep. Yvette Herrell won a decisive victory against challenger Democrat Xochitl Torres Small for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District race on election night, in the ninth hour, thousands of mail-in ballots appeared out of nowhere in Doña Ana County, swinging the election for Torres Small.
According to a thorough audit of ballots, signs of massive voter fraud were found, with over 500 ballots stamped after the 7:00 p.m. deadline, hundreds of ballots with either no address or an address that does not exist, counties that never voted a majority Democrat before with a massive plurality of Democrat absentee ballot votes, a 148% increase in absentee ballot applications since the 2016 election, and countless other red flags.
Just this year, the wife of a Democrat Española city councilor was convicted on two counts of election fraud by falsifying several absentee ballots in her husband’s favor. There are multiple cases of voter fraud in our state spanning decades The most recent cases can be found here.
In 2019, Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law same-day voter registration, which will no doubt favor Democrats with less time for verification of votes. In 2018, Maggie Toulouse Oliver attempted to unlawfully implement straight-party voting, which would make it even easier for fraudulent mail-in ballot voting, allowing criminals to only fill in one bubble on the ballot to cast illegal votes. The Supreme Court struck down Toulouse Oliver’s straight-party voting plan.
On Tuesday, it was revealed by the Piñon Post that Democrats in the New Mexico legislature could be planning a virtual special session to force through an all mail-in election, opening the door to massive voter fraud. New Mexico Republicans led by GOP House Leader Jim Townsend have come out strong against the plan.
On Wednesday, President Trump wrote on Twitter, “Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to statewide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it. Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans.”
In 2020, if New Mexico voters don’t fight voter fraud, beginning with fighting an all mail-in election, it could create a situation much like that in 2018, with signs of fraud in multiple races.
