0

On primary election day, June 2, the county will have 11 polling locations open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voters registered with the three major parties can vote at any location:

• Roswell Mall, 4501 N. Main St.

• Central Church of the Nazarene, 901 E. Country Club Road

• West Country Club Church of Christ, 700 W. Country Club Road

• Roswell Museum and Art Center, 100 W. 11th St.

• New Mexico Game and Fish Administrative Center, 1615 W. College Blvd.

• East Grand Plains Elementary School, 3773 E. Grand Plains Road

• Chaves County Administrative Center, 1 St. Mary’s Place

• Church on the Move, 901 W. Brasher Road

• Dexter Consolidated Schools district office, 100 N. Lincoln Ave.

• Hagerman JOY Center, 503 E. Argyle St.

• Lake Arthur Municipal Schools office, 700 Broadway St.

Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians also have until 7 p.m. to turn in absentee ballots.

Candidates for president, Congress, state and district judicial seats and state public commissions are on the ballot.

So are state senators and representatives, the District Attorney, three county commission seats, the county treasurer and county clerk.

Not all races are contested.

But in three county-level races, Republicans are vying for seats but facing no general election opponent, so Tuesday’s outcome will determine the race — providing the winner gets at least one vote on Nov. 3.

Those are:

• Chaves County Clerk: Cindy Fuller, the Chaves County deputy clerk, is running against Barbara Gomez, a marketing and events professional and community volunteer from Roswell.

• Chaves County Board of Commissioners, District 3: Incumbent Jeff Bilberry of Roswell, an executive officer with a large ranching group, is facing Randy Robertson, an oil industry field supervisor.

• Chaves County Board of Commissioners, District 4: Barry Foster, an elementary school teacher and current Roswell city councilor, is facing Richard Taylor, an accountant from Roswell.

More information is available from www.nmvote.org or the Chaves County Clerk’s Office, 575-624-6614.
