A few weeks ago I posted information on some of the ballot measures that will appear on New Mexicans’ ballots this fall. Not all of the information was available at the time, but at last, the Secretary of State’s office has put sample ballots online. Ballots statewide are available here and are listed by county. They are long and have a lot of important races and ballot measures on them, so I recommend you look at them early and figure out your votes ahead of time.
At last, complete text of the Rail Runner tax hike is available. The Bernalillo County language is as follows: Shall Bernalillo County impose a one-eighth of one-percent gross receipts tax which shall be dedicated to the Rio Metro Regional Transit District in equal portions for the purpose of management, operations, capital planning, construction or maintenance of the New Mexico Rail Runner Express, and for the management, operations, capital, planning construction or maintenance of the Rio Metro Regional Transit District System, pursuant to the Regional Transit District Act?
