Early voter turnout heavier than primary

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

If the early and absentee vote count is any indication, turnout for today’s general election should bring out the crowds.
“Voting in this election is definitely heavier than in the June primary,’ said Elections Manager Gloria Maestas of Los Alamos County this morning. “Through Saturday, we received 2,031 ballots cast at Mesa Public Library, 1,122 ballots cast here in the County Clerk’s Office and we mailed out 665 absentee ballots.”
Statewide early voting also has been vigorous with more than 200,000 residents casting ballots through Saturday.
Secretary of State Mary Herrera reported Monday that early voting totals are preliminary and don’t include final figures from two counties.
Early voting is up from the last time New Mexicans went to the polls in a gubernatorial election year.
About 132,000 people cast ballots through early in-person voting in 2006. Overall, 52 percent of registered voters turned out and cast ballots four years ago.
Polls will be open today from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
