County Clerk

Clerk Linda Stover

Bernalillo County voters decisively chose Linda Stover to serve as the next Bernalillo County clerk in the fall of 2016.

Ms. Stover brings a long history of public service to New Mexico and Bernalillo County. She served two terms as a board member with the Albuquerque Metropolitan Area Flood Control Authority and worked 29 years at the New Mexico Rural Rehabilitation Corporation, including 15 years as executive director. In 1996 she broke the glass ceiling to become the first woman to be elected president of the National Association of Rural Rehabilitation Corporations.

Ms. Stover is a native of Carlsbad. She’s also a graduate of Sandia High School and studied at Fullerton Junior College and the University of New Mexico.

She was married to the late Bob Stover of Taos, New Mexico, two-term Bernalillo County sheriff and twice-appointed Albuquerque police chief, who so far is the only police chief to serve two appointments. But Linda’s grandson, Sam Olmsted, truly has her heart.

Ms. Stover is an active community volunteer, serving groups such as the New Mexico Nursing Board, the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy Board and the OFFCenter Community Arts Program. She also served the City of Albuquerque for 12 years on the Albuquerque International Sunport Airport Advisory Board.

As clerk, Ms. Stover pledges to increase community outreach to increase registration and voter turnout, as well as ensure all records are accurate and easily accessible for the public.
