EARLY VOTING UNDERWAY AT DOÑA ANA COUNTY GOVERNMENT CTR.

 

The Doña Ana County Clerk’s office is reminding registered voters of several deadlines that are approaching in advance of the June 5 primary election.

Early voting is underway at the Doña Ana County Government Center and will continue through Saturday, June 2. Absentee applications must be received by 5 p.m. on June 1, 2018. Additional early voting sites will open on May 19 at locations across Doña Ana County.

 On June 5, people who are registered as Republican, Democrat or Libertarian are qualified to vote in the Primary Election. In Doña Ana County, voters will be able to take advantage of 40 polling places. 

For added convenience, voters can view real-time information about the length of lines at any polling location via the Doña Ana County Clerk’s website.

“If the last two election cycles are any indication, we expect high voter participation,” said County Clerk Scott Krahling, who has emphasized a new voting culture through a series of outreach programs and community initiatives since taking office.

“It’s exciting to see people enthusiastic about voting,” he said. “While there have been short lines during early voting, we expect a lot of voters on Election Day and won’t be surprised to see long lines. In fact, we’re hoping for a huge turnout across the county and we will be prepared to help manage lines as quickly and efficiently as possible.”

Sample ballots in English and Spanish are available online at dacelections.com.
