|New Mexico||Idalia Lechuga-Tena (state legislator)||F||2003-11||Albuquerque municipal||D||2015-11||Non-citizen voting (+registration)||New Mexico state legislator Rep. Idalia Lechuga-Tena admitted that she committed voter fraud, casting ballots before she became a naturalized U.S. citizen. According to the voting records obtained through the County Clerk, Lechuga-Tena first voted in an Albuquerque election in 2003 when she was 20, when she was not a citizen, and again in a 2014 Democratic primary election after becoming a citizen. Lechuga-Tena said that when she was 18, a group registered her to vote while she was at the University of New Mexico and that she didn’t know at the time that she had to be a U.S. citizen in order to vote. “I was a complete victim of the process,” she said. The case was referred to the district attorney in Bernalillo County in 2015, but the statute of limitations appeared to have expired. Lechuga-Tena also faced questions whether she actually lives within the district she represents. County records show that in 2007, Lechuga-Tena registered at an address within District 19, represented by state Rep. Sheryl Williams Stapleton, D-Albuquerque. In December 2014 Lechuga-Tena submitted a voter registration card with a new address within House District 21, but with a mailing address the same as her previous residence. The registration card she submitted was dated December 5, almost ten days before the County Commission appointed Maez. Two months later, Lechuga-Tena filed a new registration card with an address back in House District 19. In November 2015, she submitted a registration card with the same House District 21 address.||Statute of limitations expired||http://nmpoliticalreport.com/19599/voting-history-of-new-rep-sent-to-da-for-poss...||http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/da-reviews-newly-minted-legisla...||http://nmpoliticalreport.com/19389/heres-who-wants-to-fill-the-vacancy-in-house-...|
