Welcome to New Mexico: Your vote will self destruct in five seconds

An article in The Free Press entitled, What are they hiding in New Mexico, by Warren Stewart from the National Ballot Integrity Project raises several disturbing questions about the 2004 election in New Mexico.

It tells the incredible story of how the motion filed on Friday for a temporary restraining order to preserve the election results for a recount was denied by the New Mexico Court. Immediately after the decision was issued from the bench, counties began erasing the memories on their electronic voting machines. As a result, a recount is all but impossible since 82% of the statewide election was cast on paperless, voting machines with no audit trail.

New Mexico led the nation in under-votes, with under-votes rates over 10% in 92 precincts. 77% of these disappearing votes were cast on the paperless voting machines: the ones now being erased.
