County clerk plans ‘mobile voting units’ for seniors

June 27, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico county clerk says she’s launching a mobile voting unit for elderly voters in the state’s most populous area.

Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover says she aims to have the unit parked outside a different senior center each day during the early voting period this fall.

Early voting is set to begin Oct. 20. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

She says she wants to make it easier for seniors to vote, especially those who may have difficulty or an inability to get to polling sites.

The mobile voting site also would be open to all registered Bernalillo County voters who want to use them.

Originally from Carlsbad, Stover was elected Bernalillo County clerk in 2016.
