An election to determine whether to recall three of Tucumcari’s five commissioners will be held June 13, according to Tucumcari City Clerk Angelica Gray.
Election day voting will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Tucumcari Convention Center, 1500 W. Route 66 Blvd.
The commissioners facing recall are Ralph Moya, District 1; Amy Gutierrez, District 2; and Mayor Ruth Ann Litchfield, District 3.
A petition to recall Mayor Pro Tem Robert Lumpkin, District 4, failed to receive enough valid signatures to qualify for a recall vote.
Commissioner Todd Duplantis, District 5, was appointed to the commission March 29 to replace John Mihm, who died in December.
Early voting for the recall election will be held from May 24 to June 9 via an electronic vote tabulator at Tucumcari City Hall, 215 E. Center St.
Applications for absentee ballots must be completed and accepted by the city clerk’s office before 5 p.m. on June 9.
Voters who are not currently registered must register by 5 p.m. May 16 to be eligible to vote in the recall election.
Voters residing in the districts in which commissioners are subject to the recall may vote only on whether to recall the commissioner for their own district.
