Voters need functional and accurate resources

Voter turnout for the primary elections is already lamentably low — and flaws in the Santa Fe County Clerk’s website can only be compounding the problem. I recently moved and registered to vote at my new address, but could not recall my precinct number. Various Internet searches all sent me to the county clerk’s site, where I followed the prompt and entered my name and year of birth. “Sorry,” the site replied, “we have no record of you.” There was no way to search further (by address, map, etc.) for the information I needed.

    Good musicians ? Most of them are pan handlers with a license! Obviously you have no idea what good music is! The reason it is quiet is because the trouble makers are gone with their five dollar flute and kazoo because they most likely have a warrant for their arrest. The good musicians are still here and the city took out the trash. Thank you mayor !

    K., if people can't work within the "restrictions," which BTW, are not unreasonable, they really didn't want to provide entertainment, they wanted to urinate on the bandstand and sell/use drugs, and were never of the mindset to enrich Santa Fe.

    Gwendolyn, that issue does not have to fixed immediately, so long as it's fixed before the election, that's good enough.
