Lyndsey Kalson of Las Cruces Today sat down for a phone conversation with the ladies who make sure our elections run smoothly every year. And 2020 is going to be a historic election year. Here’s everything you need to know with Dona Ana County Clerk Amanda Lopes Askin and Cheif Deputy Clerk Lindsey Bachman –
The 2020 General Election will include a number of races including County Commissioners, County Treasurer, County Clerk, State Representatives, U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator and President of the United States. All registered voters are eligible to vote. Registered voters may update their party during the same-day voter registration period.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the County Clerk is strongly encouraging voters to consider voting via absentee ballot during the 2020 General Election. Any registrant may vote by absentee ballot for all candidates and on all questions appearing on the ballot as if you were casting it in person at a regular polling place on Election Day. You will need to formally request an absentee ballot. You may request a ballot by:
- Submitting an application online at NMVote.org Note: This option will not be available until late August or early September.
- Printing an application and mailing it to our office at 845 N. Motel Blvd., Las Cruces, NM 88007.
- Returning a completed application that you received in the mail from our office or the Secretary of State to our office at 845 N. Motel Blvd., Las Cruces, NM 88007.
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
