Vote Sign

Beginning tomorrow, Oct. 19, 2019 eight alternate early voting convenience centers, including four in Las Cruces, will open for the 2019 local election. The election will include races for mayor, City Council districts 1, 2 and 4, and presiding municipal Court Judge.

The four city locations are at Las Cruces City Hall, 700 N. Main St.; Sonoma Elementary School, 4201 Northrise Drive; Corbett Center Student Union at New Mexico State University; and the Doña Ana County Government Center.

Alternate Early Voting Centers will also be at Anthony City Hall, 820 State Highway 478, in Anthony; Delores C. Wright Educational Center, 400 E. Lisa Drive, in Chaparral; Hatch High School, 170 E. Herrera Road, in Hatch; and Doña Ana Community College, 3365 McNutt Road, in Sunland Park. They will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday from Oct. 19 through Nov. 2. At City Hall, early voting will be conducted in the conference room of the City Clerk’s Office, at the southeast corner of the lobby at City Hall.

This election marks the first time Ranked Choice Voting will be used for municipal races. With Ranked Choice Voting, voters will get to rank the candidates from favorite to least favorite. For a candidate to win, they must receive a majority of the vote, 50 percent plus one. If a candidate gets a majority of first preference votes, they win. If no candidate gets a majority of first preference votes, the candidate with the fewest first preference votes is eliminated. Voters who picked that candidate as the first choice would have their second preference vote count.

The City of Las Cruces has produced informational pamphlets about Ranked Choice Voting that are available to the public for free at the following locations:

  • City Hall, 700 N. Main St.
  • Branigan Library, 200 E Picacho Ave
  • Branigan Cultural Center, 501 N Main St
  • Regional Aquatic Center, 1401 E Hadley Ave
  • Papen Center, 304 W. Bell Ave.
  • Munson Center, 975 S Mesquite St
  • Sage Café, 6121 Reynolds Dr

Other information about Ranked Choice Voting is available online at

Election Day will be from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Nov. 5, and 40 voting convenience centers will be utilized throughout Doña Ana County. For a complete list of all voting convenience centers go to

For information, call the Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office, at 575/647-7428.
