CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - The Curry County Clerk’s Office says nearly 700 of the more than 3,000 letters sent to purged voters in June have been returned.

County Clerk Rosalie Riley told the Clovis News Journal (https://goo.gl/QvdBre) this week that the county sent letters as a final attempt to reach state-flagged voters who had not voted in two consecutive federal general elections.

Riley says the letters will be placed with the pulled voter cards with a notation of the date the letters were sent and returned.

Election Specialist Amber Roberts says the purge is supposed to be conducted every four years, although the former Secretary of State failed to send notices in 2011.

Riley says voters have until June 3, 2016 to register to vote in the next primary election.
