Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver will present the attached Precinct Adjustment Recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners as part of the 2010 Census Redistricting effort currently underway.
"The recommendations were issued by the Secretary of State’s Office for each County in New Mexico,” says Clerk Toulouse Oliver. “My office had the opportunity to review and approve these recommendations and will present them to the Board for final approval.”
“The precinct adjustmentsare essentially subdivisions of current precincts and the modifications do not change the exterior borders. The adjustments do make the precincts smaller for purposes of greater flexibility in redistricting and also for better serving the needs of the voters in those precincts,” says Clerk Toulouse Oliver.
The Secretary of State has the authority to recommend the precinct adjustments pursuant to NMSA 1-2-12.
