According to the New Mexico Department of Health, in person voting locations WILL BE OPEN for citizens to cast their ballots in today’s election. Polling locations will be open from 7 AM to 7 PM and will be operating under reduced occupancy levels to adhere with state guidelines for COVID-19 best practices. NMBC recommends looking up a sample ballot HERE so you can see your ballot options before going to the polling location and take your time researching each candidate ahead of time.

The Candidates

Last month NMBC reached out to every candidate across the state that was engaged in a primary race. Our goal was to learn more about their policy positions and find out where they stand on the issues facing New Mexicans and business owners. Our method was a 29 question survey that seeks to determine how these candidates would deal with business related issues should they win in their respective districts and move on to represent New Mexicans in Santa Fe. NMBC officials evaluated all of the candidate’s answers, and using a fair and balanced scale, issued a letter grade to  each candidate based on how favorable their positions are to growing a business friendly community and discouraging government interference.  Listed below are the links to view the House and Senate NMBC Scorecards and find out how they did before heading to the polls to cast your vote. Or if you’d like to take a deeper look into the candidates positions, NMBC has also provided the survey and candidate’s answers unedited and in their entirety for you to review at your leisure to make the most informed decision.
