School Board Elections Coming Up

Voter Registration Deadline is January 4

Voters will have an opportunity to select school board candidates in three of the seven school board districts in the Albuquerque Public Schools on Feb. 1, 2011. However, in order to vote, residents living in school board districts 1, 2 and 4 must be registered to vote by Tuesday, Jan. 4.

District 1 primarily covers the southern-most parts of Albuquerque on both sides of the river, while District 2 includes most of the northern West Side. District 4 includes the near Northeast Heights, UNM area and Kirtland Air Force Base. Board district boundary maps are available at http://www.aps.edu/about-us/board

The APS web page 2011 Board Election provides a multitude of resources for candidates and voters for the upcoming election. It has deadlines, timelines, voting locations, links to the Bernalillo County Bureau of Elections office and much more.

Anyone can access this information online or call the Board Services Office at 252-3211 or 880-3737 for assistance in locating specific details. Voters can cast their ballots at consolidated polling locations, or they can vote absentee or early.

The Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office will send absentee ballots to any registered voter requesting one. The last day to request a ballot is Friday, Jan. 28, but keep in mind that is also the last date that absentee ballots will be accepted by the County Clerk’s Office for this election.

Early voting is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011, and continues Tuesdays through Saturdays until Jan. 22, 2011, during those same hours. Locations to vote early are the Clerk’s Office Annex, 620 Lomas, NW; APS Building, 6400 Uptown Boulevard NE,; and Coors Plaza, 3200 Coors Blvd. NW, Suite A.

The election for school board districts 3, 5, 6 and 7 will be in 2013. Voting in school board elections is easy and it’s another way parents can be involved in their children’s education.
