SANTA FE – The Santa Fe County Commission on Tuesday voted 4-0 to put proposed decriminalization of possession of small amounts of marijuana within the Santa Fe city limits on the ballot for the Nov. 4 general election.
But questions remain as to whether there’s enough room on the ballot to publish the question.
State Secretary of State Dianna Duran and her Bureau of Elections Director Bobbi Shearer outlined several concerns about whether there is enough space on the ballot to handle the pot proposal and having different ballots in precincts split between city and county voters.
But County Clerk Geraldine Salazar was confident any issues could be overcome. She said her office had experience dealing with ballots that list different issues and have to be separated.
