New Mexico Supreme Court eliminates straight party voting
The Green Party of New Mexico agrees with and appreciates the decision of the New Mexico Supreme Court to strike straight-party or straight-ticket voting from New Mexico ballots. Straight-party voting is a device that serves the dominant party. Minor party, unaffiliated, and write-in candidates are further disadvantaged by a mechanism that encourages voter disinterest.
Down-ticket races tend to become part of a spiral of increasing single-party rule and uncontested incumbency. The result is less democracy.
