New Mexico’s top elections official told lawmakers Tuesday she is concerned that a review of the state’s voter registration rolls and a list of the thousands of foreign nationals who have been issued driver’s licenses under a much debated state law has turned up evidence of fraud.

Secretary of State Dianna Duran issued a statement Tuesday evening that provided details of her office’s findings after two days of cross checking the databases.

The office matched 117 voter registrations to names and dates of birth in the database of foreign national license holders. All 117 have Social Security numbers on their voter registrations that do not match their names, and at least 37 of those individuals have voted in New Mexico elections.http://www.washingtonpost.com/nm-secretary-of-state-reviews-voter-rolls-list-of-foreign-nationals-with-drivers-licenses/2011/03/15/ABJnIfa_story.html
