SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Secretary of State Dianna Duran says another county is proposing nonbinding ballot questions to poll its voters in the November general election.

Duran said Monday that Chaves County has approved five advisory questions, including ones to ask the county’s voters whether they would support local ordinances to require voter identification, ban the release of wolves in the county and repeal a prevailing wage that must be paid by contractors on certain taxpayer-financed construction projects.

The county also wants to poll its voters about a possible right-to-work measure.

Duran said she has asked her attorney to review the measures in light of a state Supreme Court ruling last week that required her office to place advisory questions on the ballot proposed by Santa Fe and Bernalillo counties.
