Village Hall pleads ignorance
Capitan Village Clerk Kay Strickland, and her deputy clerk, Shirley, presided over the early voting to the March 4 election. Turns out, they didn't require signatures, against state election code, for those early votes. Turns out, those early votes heavily favored the incumbents, while the voting was much closer on March 4. Strickland told Judge Martha Proctor, who canvassed the vote, she just didn't know better. Turns out, Strickland and Shirley have both been to Election School. Of course, they know better. Is Capitan Village Hall perpetuating a cover-up of election practices? What's your take?
