In one of the poorest states in the nation, access to public records in New Mexico varies by county and town, and training among officials in charge of disseminating records is inconsistent, according to a review by The Associated Press.
And for the most part, records aren’t available online.
Court documents, police reports and other material can only be obtained in person in many New Mexico counties and officials charge by the page and sometimes will only mail them.
