HR encourages the UNM community to vote in the upcoming 2020 General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
The State of New Mexico permits any registered voter to request a ballot by mail or to vote in person—but you’ll need to register to vote by Tuesday, Oct. 6, which is also the same day that absentee voting begins.
New Mexico residents who need to register may do so by mail or online.
GO Bond C for Higher Education
One of the statewide ballot issues impacting UNM is the General Obligation Bond C for Higher Education.
Passage of Bond C would provide $30 million for the Colleges of Nursing and Population Health, $13.2 million will support academic and research infrastructure upgrades, and over $8.2 million will support our branch campuses.
Additionally, the GO Bond will not raise taxes. To learn more details about what GO Bonds are, and a breakdown of the projects they will fund, visit the UNM GO Bonds website.
Remember, per University policy, employees who are registered voters are eligible for up to a maximum of two hours of leave with pay, at their request, and time off from University duties to vote in a governmental election.
This policy does not apply to employees whose daily work schedule either begins more than two hours after the polls open or ends at least three hours before the polls close.
