County commission approves voting locations for local elections


All voting locations have been finalized for the 2023 regular local election that will take place Tuesday, Nov. 7, in Las Cruces, Mesilla, Sunland Park, Anthony and Hatch, Doña Ana County Clerk Amanda López Askin said in a news release. School board elections for Las Cruces Public Schools, Gadsden Independent School District and Hatch Valley Public Schools will be on the ballot, along with soil and water conversation district boards of supervisors in the county.

The Doña Ana County Commissioners voted to approve changing locations for the following voting convenience centers for the election, López Askin said: East Mesa Dona Ana Community College (previously located at Sonoma Elementary School), Chaparral Dona Ana Community College (previously located at the Delores Wright Community Center), Anthony Public Library (previously located at Anthony City Hall) and Mesquite Fire Department #10 (previously located at Mesquite Elementary School).

Commissioners voted to change those four locations due to wait times, parking challenges and constituent feedback, the county clerk said.

"Our goal is to increase voter turnout by making it more convenient for residents to show up to their local polling location," López Askin said. "These locations ensure that residents can vote quickly and more efficiently."
