CLERK’S OFFICE OFFERS OPTIONS FOR ABSENTEE VOTERS

Some Doña Ana County residents have contacted the Bureau of Elections complaining that they have not yet received their absentee ballots. Registered voters who remain in Doña Ana County and have not received an absentee ballot can go to any early voting site to complete an affidavit of non-receipt, stating they have not voted their absentee ballot, at which time they will be issued a ballot and be allowed to vote.

Those who have not received their absentee ballot by Election Day may go to the polling place where they are registered to request a provisional ballot and be allowed to vote.

To be counted, absentee ballots must reach the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4. Ballots can be mailed in or hand-delivered to the Doña Ana County Government Center by the voter or a member of the voter’s immediate family.

Absentee ballots also can be delivered to polling places on Election Day, but only the voter can deliver an absentee ballot to a polling place.
