Early Voting and Same Day Voter Registration Underway


Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover reminds citizens that early voting and same day voter registration are underway for the Dec. 10 Albuquerque Runoff Election.

“Early voting for the Albuquerque Runoff Election for City Council Districts 2 and 4 is underway and once again there is same day voter registration available,” says Clerk Stover. “This is a non-partisan election, but there are differences between the candidates, and the city council reviews, approves, or amends all budgets of the city and adopts policies, plans, programs and legislation. In that way, the runoff election is bigger than you think!”

The Runoff Election for City Council Districts 2 and 4 is required under the Top-Two Runoff Election rule which requires candidates for Albuquerque City Council to receive fifty percent or more of the votes cast for the office in question. If no candidate receives 50% of the votes, the two candidates who receive the highest number of votes automatically become the candidates for the runoff election. The District 2 candidates are Isaac Benton and Zackary Quintero. The District 4 candidates are Brook Bassan and Ane Romero.

The five early voting locations are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Nov. 19 to Dec. 7, 2019 with the exception of Nov. 28, 29 and 30. The locations are as follows:

Clerk’s Annex – 1500 Lomas Blvd NW, Suite A (map)

Daskalos Center - 5339 Menaul Blvd NE (map)

Holly Plaza – 6600 Holly Ave NE, Suite B-6 (map)

Los Ranchos Villa – 6601 4th St NW, Suite E, F (map)

The Shoppes at 6001 San Mateo – 6001 San Mateo Blvd NE, Suite B-3 (map)

On Election Day, Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019, there will be 10 voting convenience centers open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be no same day voter registration nor voter registration updates on Election Day.

To vote, county residents may identify themselves with a verbal or written statement of their name, registration address and year of birth. Or they may choose to present a physical form of ID such as a driver’s license, original copy of a utility bill, bank statement or student ID card.

To register to vote at an early voting location, county residents need to bring: a NM driver’s license or NM ID card issued through the Motor Vehicle Division of Taxation and Revenue; or, any document that contains an address in the county together with a photo ID card; or, a current valid student photo ID card from a post-secondary educational institution in NM accompanied by a current student fee statement that contains the student’s address in the county.

Applications for absentee ballots will be accepted through Dec. 5. Applications may be made online on the Secretary of State’s website (link). Voters may also request the application by telephone (505-243-8683) or by email (clerk@bernco.gov).
