The local election season is underway again, with candidates making official declarations this week and campaign signs sprouting on the roadsides.
Bernalillo, Corrales and Rio Rancho will all hold municipal elections on March 4.
Mayors Tom Swisstack of Rio Rancho and Phil Gasteyer of Corrales are stepping down, while Bernalillo Mayor Jack Torres is seeking re-election.
Rio Rancho and Corrales have three council seats in play; Bernalillo has two. Unlike Rio Rancho and Corrales, Bernalillo councilors are not districted and run at-large.
