OFFICIAL 2016 PRIMARY ELECTION RESULTS

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Eligible 17 Year Olds to Vote in the Primary Election

The Secretary of State's Office has issued a guidance on the implementation of 17 year olds voting in the 2016 Primary Election after consultation with the Attorney General, and the Secretary of State has confirmed that beginning May 18, 2016, 17 year olds eligible to vote pursuant to House Bill 138 will be able to vote in the June 7, 2016 Primary Election.

Here are the specific conditions for eligibility in order for 17 year olds to vote in the Primary:

       1.  17 year olds must register to vote prior to books closing on May 10, 2016.
       2.   Eligible 17 year olds must turn 18 on or before the General Election, November 8, 2016.
       3.   17 year olds must register as a Democrat or Republican to vote in the Primary Election.

If the above conditions have been met then the registrant may vote beginning on May 18, 2016.  In order to accommodate this, there are some configuration changes that must be made in VREMS at the State and County level and IT'S HAPPENING!

Geraldine Salazar, Santa Fe County Clerk - April 12, 2016

Voters may check their registration information online at Voter View, https://voterview.state.nm.us/VoterView/RegistrantSearch.do , by calling the County Clerk’s Office, Bureau of Elections, or visiting the County Clerk’s Office in person at 102 Grant Ave. Santa Fe, NM.

A voter’s registration information can be updated using a voter registration form, which are preaddressed with postage prepaid. Forms can be obtained by calling or visiting the County Clerk’s Office or form at any of the three County Satellite Offices, located at (1) the Eldorado Senior Center on 16 Avenida Torreon; (2) in Edgewood at 114 Quail Trail; and (3) the Pojoaque satellite office at 5 West Gutierrez, Suite 9, Pojoaque Pueblo Plaza near the Buffalo Thunder exit on 285 on the west frontage road. The voter just needs to completely fill out the voter registration form, sign it, date it, and mail it back to the County Clerk’s Office. It’s that easy.

“Now is also a great time for new voters to register and for those removed from the voter list to reregister,” Clerk Salazar said. A voter must make changes or register by 28 days before an election. “Registering now avoids the rush right before an election,” Clerk Salazar explained.
