Voters will decide two City Council races Tuesday

Brook Bassan, left, and Ane Romero are in a Tuesday runoff for the District 4 Albuquerque City Council seat.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Election season is not yet over in the city of Albuquerque as Tuesday’s runoff election will determine a pair of City Council seats.

Voters in District 2 – which includes Downtown, Old Town and part of the North Valley – will choose between incumbent Isaac Benton and legal analyst Zack Quintero.

In the Northeast Heights-based District 4, the candidates are Brook Bassan, a self-described “household CEO,” and Ane Romero, a deputy legislative director for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:

• Clerk’s Annex, 1500 Lomas NW, Suite A

Isaac Benton, left, and Zack Quintero

• Daskalos Center, 5339 Menaul NE

• Holly Plaza, 6600 Holly NE, Suite B-6

• Los Ranchos Villa, 6601 Fourth NW, Suite E, F

• The Shoppes at 6001 San Mateo, 6001 San Mateo NE, Suite B-3

• Arroyo del Oso Elementary, 6504 Harper Drive NE

• Herman Sanchez Community Center, 1830 William SE

• Jefferson Middle School, 712 Girard NE

• Valley High School, 1505 Candelaria NW

• La Cueva High School, 7801 Wilshire NE

Four of nine City Council seats were up for election on Nov. 5, but nobody in the six-way District 2 field or three-candidate District 4 race reached the 50% vote threshold required to win. In such cases, the city charter mandates the top two candidates compete in a runoff.

Nearly 9,500 residents of those districts have already voted in the runoff via early voting sites or absentee ballots, according to the Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office.
