Voting & Elections 06.18.2024

Groups Issue Statements Following Albuquerque City Council Decision to Advance Anti-Democracy Proposal to Ballot

Today, the Albuquerque City Council voted to advance a controversial charter amendment to the ballot in the 2024 General Election, which would originally lower the threshold to be elected mayor or city councilor from the current 50 percent of the vote to 40 percent. During the meeting, the City Council voted to amend the proposal further, eliminating the voting threshold altogether and only permitting runoffs if two leading candidates tie.
