SANTA FE – Voters flocked to early voting locations Saturday as New Mexico expands early balloting in the lead-up to Election Day on Nov. 3.
At an early voting center in Santa Fe, cars lined up hours ahead of the 10 a.m. opening time.
Reports of slow mail and long in-person voting lines in other states motivated many voters to show up early.
