What? Albuquerque Questions May Not Fit Onto Ballot

   All of Albuquerque's proposed questions for voters may not fit onto Bernalillo County's general election ballot.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that county election workers are testing different ballot combinations of questions submitted by the city.

The City Council wants to add five items to the general-election ballot, which includes state and county races.

The proposed questions include a marijuana decriminalization measure and a proposed tax increase for social-service programs.

County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver says she expects to be able to accommodate at least one city question, not all five.

According to Oliver, there are 700 ballot combinations for the questions.
