Anti Same-Day Registration Ads

I did a story about those ads you might have seen on cable TV against same-day voter registration and for voter ID.

Turns out thery're the work of a small (three person) PAC in Las Cruces.

The story is HERE. The ads are below.

By the way, Rep. Jim Trujillio's HB52 is scheduled to be heard Thursday by the House Voters and Elections Committee. And Rep. Joe Cervantes, who is sponsoring a similar bill, HB395, says the current version of his bill would require a photo ID to register at the polls.

UPDATE: I talked to Rep. Trujillo Wednesday. He said his bill has been postponed in the committee until next week.
