New Mexico Supreme Court rejects automated one-party voting

New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver leaves a courthouse in Santa Fe on Wednesday, where the state Supreme Court ruled against her efforts to reinstate a straight-party voting option on the November ballot. The option would have allowed voters in New Mexico to select candidates from a particular party in all races by marking a single ballot box. Critics say that would have harmed independent, minor-party and Republican candidates in a state dominated by registered Democrats.
