Early voting for the Nov. 8 general election starts at 8 am today at the Santa Fe County Clerk's Office (100 Catron St.) and will continue there on weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm through Friday, Nov. 4 (you can also vote at the clerk's office between 10 am and 6 pm on Saturday, Nov. 5). Additional early voting locations open on Saturday, Oct. 22 across the county, including at the Santa Fe County Fair Building and Southside Library. Today also marks the first day absentee ballots will be mailed to voters who requested them. Santa Fe County Clerk Katharine Clark says voters who have already requested absentee ballots should expect to receive them by Oct.18. In general, she says, allow seven days each way via mail for your absentee ballot. You can apply online for an absentee ballot here through Nov. 3 (which would be cutting it quite close with the postal service) and view a sample ballot here. Today also is the deadline for candidates to file their second general campaign finance reports (technically they were due yesterday, but the deadline was changed in observance of Indigenous Peoples Day). Ready to tackle the ballot but need a little help? Be sure to grab a paper copy of this week's SFR Election Guide (or bookmark online if you plan to vote later).
