Early voting gets underway today

Let the voting begin.

Registered city of Albuquerque voters can begin casting their ballots Wednesday as early voting gets underway. But if you plan to head to any one of the dozen early voting sites, you’ll need to bring a photo ID.

Voters will cast their ballots for mayor, five city council races, bond questions and the proposed Healthy Workforce Ordinance.

Eight mayoral candidates have qualified for the ballot, but it’s the first time in 20 years that an incumbent isn’t running for the office.

Election Day is Oct. 3.

If no candidate in a race gets 50 percent of the vote, that race will be decided in a runoff between the top two candidates in November.

Early voting will run through Sept. 29 and is available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the following locations:
