On Election Day, any registered voter in Grant County will receive a ballot reflecting the precinct in which he or she is registered at SIX of the convenience centers, those in Silver City The Woman's Club and the Grant County Business and Conference Center as well as the Tyrone Community Center, the National Guard Armory, Bayard Community Center and Hurley Community Center that will be open that day.

Father out in the county, traditional sites for Election Day include: Cliff School, Redrock Church, Pinos Altos Volunteer Fire Department, Sapillo VFD, San Lorenzo Elementary School, Mule Creek Community Center and Hachita Baptist Church.

Marissa Castrillo, Bureau of Elections Manager at the Clerk's Office, gave an example. If someone is from Gila, and is in Silver City shopping that day and cannot make it back to Cliff to vote, that person may vote at any of the SIX convenience centers and will receive a ballot printed on the computer reflecting that person's precinct.

The outlying locations are not connected to the same computers as the ones in and around Silver City and in the three Mining District locations, so those who live in the outlying districts will be voting a traditional ballot based on the precincts consolidated into that voting venue.

Anyone from outside the precincts included in that polling place, who votes at an outlying location will be provided a provisional ballot, and will be able to vote only for those for whom he or she is eligible to vote by precinct location.

 Castrillo said provisional ballots will be canvassed the morning of Nov. 7, and will be counted.

She also safeguards are in place to prevent people from voting twice, whether they voted early, absentee or try to vote twice on Election Day at two different locations.
