Rio Rancho Voting Woes

Man-about-town / Alibi contributor Clifford Grindstaff reported that a woman from Sandoval County appeared at an Albuquerque polling place this afternoon seeking advice about where to vote. And voters in Rio Rancho (the majority of which is in Sandoval County) reported this morning that they were waiting in long lines to cast their ballots. One woman told KOB News that she’d waited for 2 hours and 20 minutes before she was able to vote at Puesta Del Sol Elementary School.

Let’s hope that the Sandoval County Clerk’s office was able to iron out any difficulties before the work day ended. As of this spring, there were more than 50,000 eligible voters in Rio Rancho. The county only has five polling locations to serve the entire town.
