SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Voters are flocking to early voting locations Saturday as New Mexico expands early balloting in the lead-up to Election Day. 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. Scores of voting convenience centers opened Saturday amid a surge in early in-person and remote absentee balloting. Those centers accept voters from across their home county without regard to traditional precinct assignments. According to the Secretary of State's office, more than 180,000 ballots have been cast statewide as of Friday.
