Today is election day. You can vote on red-light cameras, bonds and the councilors for districts 2, 4, 6 and 8. See if you reside in one of those regions here.

In 2005, voters decided that everyone has to bring photo ID to the polls for city elections. The League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico outlines what types of ID will work on their
election page.

The photo identification may include, but is not limited to, any of the following types of cards:

• issued by a government agency (e.g., passport, city/county/state/federal ID badge, state identification card)

• a driver’s license

• student identification card

• commercial transaction card such as a credit or debit card

• an insurance card

• a union card

• a professional association card

• the photo identification card issued by the City Clerk (only issued when other photo ID is unavailable)

This list is not exclusive. If the voter is able to present an identification card that contains the voter’s picture and name he/she should be issued a regular ballot.
