ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A University of New Mexico study found Bernalillo County has one of the most efficient election systems in the United States.
The report comes from the university’s Center for the Study of Voting, Elections and Democracy.
It examined a variety of factors, including the thoroughness of poll monitoring and poll worker training, as well as voter’s experiences.
Bernalillo County scored high in voter confidence and satisfaction and came out as having cost-effective electoral procedures.
