History marks 2008 election

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Nearly 83 percent of local voters cast ballots in the Nov. 4 general election, which for the first time in history placed an African American in the White House.

 

On Jan. 20, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., will officially become the 44th president of the United States.

 

In Los Alamos County, 10,922 out of 13,186 eligible voters cast ballots, according to official results posted on the Secretary of State’s website.

 

Statewide voter turnout came in at 68.34 percent or 815,363 out of 1,193,084 eligible voters.

 

Unlike some states that ran into problems and lagged behind, New Mexico’s election canvass was completed for all 33 counties by Nov. 25.

 

The Secretary of State’s office credited the state’s county clerks for the “efficient manner” in which they completed their county canvasses, saying their efforts allowed the statewide canvassing to go smoothly.

 

“I would like to acknowledge my staff for their diligence and persistence in completing this project in a timely manner,” New Mexico Secretary of State Mary Herrera said at the time.
