Election Resolution

June  2019 was certainly a busy time for the staff in the Clerk’s Office as well as for the County Council.  Recently passed legislation in House Bill 407 (HB 407) brought many changes to the Election Code, and as a result the following three resolutions were approved as required by the Election Code.   

Click on the Resolution title to view the Resolution in its entirety.

Effective Immediately:  Resolution 19-07 – Amendment to the Current Polling Places (also known as Vote Centers)

In 2017, the County Council approved Resolution 17-19 designating the polling places of each precinct for the 2018-2019 election cycle. The polling places that were designated in 2017 are as follows:

  • White Rock Town Hall - 139 Longview Drive, White Rock, NM
  • Betty Ehart Senior Center - 1101 Bathtub Row, Los Alamos, NM
  • LAC Municipal Building - 1000 Central Avenue, Los Alamos, NM
  • LAC Golf Course Community Building - 4244 Diamond Drive, Los Alamos, NM

After careful consideration and in preparation for the November 5, 2019 Regular Local Election, County Clerk Maestas with the support of the County Council, has now added the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Branch as an Election Day Vote Center.  Adding this site, should make voting more accommodating not only for all voters of Los Alamos, but primarily for eligible college and high school voters. 

Effective in 2020:  Resolution No. 19-06 Precinct Boundaries Adjustment

Due to recently passed legislation (HB 407), the County Council is required to adjust a precinct if the precinct has had more than seven hundred fifty (750) votes cast by voters of that precinct at a general election based on the two most recent general elections. Within the two most recent general elections precincts 6, 11, 15, and 16, have each had over seven hundred fifty (750) votes cast in their respective precincts. Consequently, the precincts have also been renumbered to better flow in sequential order. These precinct adjustments will not take effect until January 1, 2020.

 Effective for the 2020 and 2021 Election Cycle: Resolution No. 19-08 Designated the Election Day Polling Places for all Statewide and Special Elections Conducted in 2020 and 2021; And Established the County Canvassing Board through the end of 2021

Resolution 19-08 designates the following polling places through December 31, 2021:

  • White Rock Town Hall - 139 Longview Drive, White Rock, NM
  • Betty Ehart Senior Center - 1101 Bathtub Row, Los Alamos, NM
  • LAC Municipal Building - 1000 Central Avenue, Los Alamos, NM
  • LAC Golf Course Community Building - 4244 Diamond Drive, Los Alamos
  • University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Branch – 4000 University Drive, Los Alamos, NM

 In addition, the County Council has appointed the following individuals serve as the County Canvassing Board for all Elections through December 31, 2021:

  • Laura Burrows (L)
  • Cameron Counters (D)
  • Chris Luchini (L)
  • Terry Marzili (R)
  • Dave Schiferl (D)
