Senator Mark Moores Issues Statement Following Senate Passage of Senate Bill 180

Election code change does not include key ballot integrity measures

SANTA FE – Senate Bill 180 today passed the Senate on party-line vote with all Republicans voting opposing the partisan measure. The bill makes significant changes to the election code related to election administration. Senate Republicans submitted two amendments, which were both rejected, including one that would have instituted universal voter ID.

Senate Republican Caucus Chair, Senator Mark Moores (R-Albuquerque), issued the following statement regarding the bill’s passage:

“Partisan Democrats, including the bill sponsor who derailed last year’s bipartisan election integrity effort, weakened our republic by passing this bill. Our country is being torn apart by distrust in our electoral system. Senate Democrats could have listened to our input and worked with us to address the concerns of nearly half of all voting Americans. Instead, they unilaterally made significant tweaks to the election code without regard for anyone but themselves. Their actions today did nothing to restore trust in our system and will only fuel the partisan divide.”
