Albuquerque 2021 local election – Albuquerque Journal


Welcome to the coverage of the Albuquerque City and School Board Race Journal in the 2021 election.

Here you will find key dates and voter information, links to published press articles, and information and questionnaires for many local candidates. It will also include links to our coverage of bond issues on the ballot, including the city’s proposal to issue $ 50 million in bonds to build a new stadium for United.

This is a work in progress and ABQjournal will continue to add journal content, including our editorial board approvals as they become available.

Contact Martin Salazar [email protected] if you are looking for additional information. For official election information, including where to register to vote, call the Bernalillo County Clerk at (505) 468-1290.

We hope you find these resources useful. See you at the polls.
