Your Vote —
Make It Count!
Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover and her staff educated voters on the three ways you can vote in the general election — Absentee, Early Voting, or Same-Day Voting.
During the DPBC sponsored meeting, which was held via zoom on August 26, Stover also gave an overview of how her office will make it as easy as possible for EVERYONE to vote and do it SAFELY!
The team, which included Jaime Diaz and Nathan Jaramillo, called for everyone to be patient in receiving their absentee ballots, and assured the audience that if you choose to vote in person through early voting or on election day, you will be safe. Their record in the June primary election around the pandemic, speaks for itself.
