Democracy Starts with Us

  

The Bureau of Elections Mission:

The Bureau of Elections protects one of the most fundamental rights of citizens in our democracy by maintaining the integrity of the election process and providing fair and equal opportunities for citizens to vote in Doña Ana County.

What we do:

The Bureau of Elections is in charge of general information regarding voting, including voter registration, Early and Absentee Voting, all election scheduling, legal publicizing and administration, precinct polling site allocation and localization, as well as poll worker recruitment and training.

We are also a public information bank providing information such as precinct maps and contact information for elected officials. We support municipalities with conducting their elections by programming and providing voting machines as well as providing the official list of eligible voters.

The Bureau of Elections is responsible for ensuring compliance with state mandated requirements and regulations that pertain to elections and equipment required at the polling place.

Guiding Principles:

We believe in democracy and the importance of majority rule and individual rights.

We value and protect every citizen’s right to vote free of intimidation or obstruction.

The Bureau of Elections ensures that all qualified voters have an equal opportunity to vote.

All aspects of the election process must be handled with integrity because elections are the foundations of local, state and federal government.

Our society thrives when all members of the community are active citizens.

Transparent elections ensure that the public can trust the results.

Customer Service is critical to the success of elections because it strengthens public confidence in the election process.
