Martinez and Duran to Voters..."F**K You!"
I have voted the straight ticket many times. And a few times I haven't. But it was a choice. And Duran and her mascots have just lessened my choices when I step into the voters booth. And they are doing it to get more republicans elected. Don't think they would have done this if it were neutral or favored democrats. And they did it unilaterally. No legislation. No public meetings. No public input whatsoever.
There is something called a drop off on the ballot. If you are not given the opportunity to vote a straight ticket then it is likely that many of the lower races will not be voted on. And because there are more democrats than republicans you can see the result.
Make no mistake about it. Governor Martinez, Secretary of State Duran and their extreme right wing supporters like the oil and gas industry have planned this as nothing more than voter suppression. Someone needs to step up with lawsuits, both civil and criminal, and make them pay.
