Registration to vote in municipal elections in Las Cruces ending soon

Las Cruces City Hall.

There are three open spots for City Council representatives and one spot for a municipal judge in Las Cruces.

It’ll all depend on your vote as to who gets to represent your district.

If you still haven’t registered to vote in this municipal election for your City Council representatives, you still have one more day.

"If we don't use our voices, how can we make a change for the positive in our cities?" said Wendy McCreesh.

There’s a total of eight candidates running in this municipal election for three different districts.

Districts 3, 5, and 6 in Las Cruces may get new representatives.

Running for Districts 3 is Beverly Courtney, followed by Gabriel Vasquez and Stephen Jaramillo.

In the running for Districts 5 are three contenders. One is District 5 Councilman Gill Sorg, who’s up for re-election.

He is followed by Steven Montanez and William Fuller.

There are only two candidates in the running to represent Districts 6.

Those two are City Councilor Ceil Levatino, who is up for re-election, and Yvonne Flores.

People in Las Cruces tell KFOX14 why it’s important to vote.

"You should have a say-so in what you want done. We live in a justice society so we should have that right too,” Terry Lara said.

There’s also an open seat for a municipal judge, with three people in the running.

They are Judge Joy Goldbaum, Kent Yalkut and Nelson Goodin.

If you still haven’t registered to vote, you can do so at the City Clerk's Office.

For a list of voting stations, you can visit the city's website for a station near you.

"I would just encourage everybody to get out there and register to vote and make your voice known and help our city become better,” McCreesh said.

The last day to register to vote for the Nov. 7 municipal election is Tuesday.

Voting registration books will remain open until 5 p.m.
