With election deadlines fast approaching, Albuquerque’s ranked-choice voting legislation remains in limbo.
But supporters of the proposal to change the way Duke City residents select councilors and the mayor have not abandoned their quest to see it implemented by the Nov. 5 local election.
City Councilors Isaac Benton and Pat Davis, Democrats, and Brad Winter, a Republican, introduced the ranked-choice legislation in April. To have it in place this year, the council would have to approve it by June 30 – the deadline for the city to submit election details to the New Mexico Secretary of State.
