New Mexico - 02
The local media called the race for Yvette Herrell on Election Night after she led by 1,972 votes. But the next morning a liberal county reported 8,000 absentee ballots that they didn't report on Election Day. These late ballots put Herrell behind by 2,726 votes (1.4%).
The final number of absentee votes reported by this county quadrupled compared to the 2014 elections, and they were not properly protected as required by state law.
Yvette Herrell will be challenging these ballots to guarantee the integrity of this election, but she needs help to pay for it. Her campaign will have to pay the state for its review and pay election attorneys to make sure the law is followed.
