As municipal election season approaches, multiple locations across Albuquerque will open for early voting on Oct. 19. Several of these locations are close enough to the University of New Mexico that students who are ready to vote now can head to the polls now. 

Several offices are up for election this voting season including four city council districts. Districts two, four, six and eight have new candidates as well as incumbents running for reelection, except for Brad Winter, an incumbent for District 4 who will not be running. Pat Davis, who is the current city council member representing constituents in the UNM area, is running for reelection against Gina Davis.

Early voting locations close to the University include:

The University of New Mexico - Student Union Building
