Alex Kerrtus, Communications Director, Secretary of State for New Mexico, said:
A new rule created by the Secretary of State stated that all counties require at least two secure ballot drop boxes. But now, with local elections just two weeks away, many counties haven’t installed new boxes yet.
For example, Bernarillo County has both boxes, but I’m learning that installation can be time consuming. The box should be bolted to the ground in a well-lit area, locked at all times and monitored by video.
“Currently, not all counties are fully compliant in these local elections, but we are working with the counties to ensure they are primary compliant,” Curtas said.
Currently, Bernalillo County has two secure drop boxes that are open to the public during normal business hours, but we are working with vendors to allow you to drop ballots at any time.
