County Clerk Issues Update On Posting Of Election Night Results In Light Of COVID-19

COUNTY NEWS

In light of the Governor recently affirming the ban on mass gatherings for the foreseeable future, County Clerk Naomi Maestas announced today that her office will forego Election Night Reporting (in-person) on Tuesday, Nov. 3, inside the Municipal Building, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, as the Clerk’s office continues to do its part to battle the ongoing public health pandemic.

As done in the June 2020 Primary, rather than congregating and waiting for results tapes from each of the vote centers to be posted at the Municipal Building, the Clerk’s office will post results to their website: www.losalamosnm.us/clerk. Once results have been posted to the website, the Clerk will also post this info to their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

As a reminder, voters may submit completed ballots to any Election Day polling place until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, therefore, the Absentee by Mail Precinct Board will be working well past 7 p.m. qualifying and processing any ballots accepted at each of the Election Day Vote Centers and given to the County Clerk.
