2019 Regular Local Election Certified

11/15/2019

The first ever "Regular Local Election" is in the books. Clerk Linda Stover presented results to the Bernalillo County Board of Canvass on Nov. 15, 2019. The board certified the results which were forwarded to the Secretary of State.  

The election was the result of the Local Election Act of 2018 and Election Laws 50-Year Tune-up of 2019. Prior to that, local governments could conduct multiple elections throughout the year. The Local Election Act is intended to improve efficiency and reduce the costs associated with administering multiple elections. The goal is also to provide a more consistent experience for voters and increase voter turnout by eliminating the confusion surrounding when an election takes place and where people can vote.

The first regular local election took place on Nov. 5, 2019 and in Bernalillo County included candidates and ballot questions for the City of Albuquerque, Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, Village of Tijeras, Albuquerque Public Schools (APS), Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority (AMAFCA), Paradise Hills Special Zoning District, Ciudad, Edgewood and Valencia Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) and Ventana West Public Improvement District.

The most recent municipal election with the same Albuquerque City Council district races and ballot questions was in 2015. That year a total of 28,408 people voted. This year over 97,000 voters turned out.
