Absentee and early voting for the upcoming Regular Municipal Election have begun.

Those wishing to vote early or absentee in-person may do so from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays at City Hall and from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at City Hall. Election Day will be Tuesday, March 5, with polling sites at the Senior Center and Faith Baptist Church. Artesians may vote at either site on Election Day.

Residents of City Council District 1 will be choosing between incumbent Ignacio “Nacho” Mariscal and challenger Nick Garcia, and the entire community will be voting for Artesia Municipal Court judge. Candidates for that office include current judge Sarah Gallegos and Alexander Caprilozzi.

Residents of Council Districts 2 and 3 will have their current councilors — Jarrod Moreau and Jeff Youtsey, respectively — running unopposed, and no candidates declared for the District 4 seat that will be vacated by Sam Hagelstein. A councilor will be appointed in that district, and additional information on that process will be detailed at an upcoming council meeting.

For those needing to verify their council district of residence, district maps can be viewed at artesianm.gov/DocumentCenter/View/4526/Voting-District-Map-2022-PDF or visit voterportal.servis.sos.state.nm.us/WhereToVote.aspx, enter your information, and check “Councilor” under “District Type.”
