The Fair Elections Legal Network says that Secretary of State Dianna Duran might be undermining public confidence in the election system by having the state Department of Public Safety investigation 64,000 voter registrations.
Duran's chief of staff, Ken Ortiz said the SOS won't be in her office until next week and couldn't respond until then.
The Washington, D.C. based group also said it would be a violation of state law if Duran's office gave the DPS Social Security numbers or dates of birth found on the 64,000 registrations.
