New Signature, Qualifying Contribution Websites for 2021 Election Cycle Enable Covid-Safe Campaigns

City Clerk’s Office offers additional ways to collect qualifying contributions and petition signatures

ALBUQUERQUE – The City Clerk’s Office is launching two new websites to make collecting qualifying contributions for public financing and petition signatures for all candidates seeking to get on the ballot in the 2021 Regular Local Election more accessible in a pandemic.


City Clerk Ethan Watson said, “The creation of these new websites gives all candidates the tools to maximize public health while still fulfilling the requirements of the City Charter. Our modernized sites will allow candidates to collect the required petition signatures and public financing qualifying contributions electronically, alongside the traditional paper methods.”

 

All candidates will be able to collect petition signatures securely and electronically using the new website. For candidates seeking public financing, the City Clerk’s Office rebuilt the online qualifying contribution site that was first used in the 2019 election cycle as a pilot program. The website allows candidates to collect five-dollar contributions electronically from registered voters in the district or City for which they are seeking election.

 

These websites were built in collaboration with the Secretary of State’s Office. The sites will verify a voter’s registration against the Secretary of State’s voter registration database before allowing a donation or signature.

 

“I’m proud of this important collaboration between the City of Albuquerque and my office,” said Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver. “These websites will make the process of qualifying for the ballot safer and more accessible for all potential candidates in Albuquerque elections. Tools like these are key in the ongoing process of modernizing our elections at all levels of government.”

 

These websites are offered as an additional means to collect qualifying contributions and petitions signatures, but candidates are still allowed to collect these in the traditional paper methods as well. The City Clerk’s Office encourages candidates to follow the State’s public health guidelines when doing so.

 

Throughout March and early April, the City Clerk’s Office will post educational information, helpful guidelines, and answer questions about the use of these sites for candidates who would like to make use of them for their campaign and residents interested in supporting their preferred candidates through these platforms.

 

Mayoral candidates seeking public financing can begin collecting qualifying contributions and petition signatures April 17. The period for Council candidates seeking public financing begins May 31. Privately financed candidates for Mayor may begin using the site to collect petition signatures on June 8 and privately financed candidates for City Council may begin using the site on July 6.

 

For more information, please visit cabq.gov/vote. The websites will be live beginning April 17.

Albuquerque City Clerk’s Office Launches Social Media Outreach

New Efforts by Clerk Will Increase Transparency & Public Awareness of Elections

December 12, 2018

In an effort to keep constituents informed about upcoming elections, ethics reforms, public records, administrative hearings, and overall transparency initiatives at City Hall, City Clerk Katy Duhigg today announced the launch of official social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook.

“Through our social media accounts, we will be better able to keep Albuquerque residents informed about the important work we’re doing here in the Clerk’s office,” said Duhigg. “We’ll also be better able to alert folks to upcoming events, and elections that they may want to participate in.”

In the coming months, the City Clerk’s office will be actively participating in the legislative session, running a special mail-in election with important updates to the City’s public financing system for Mayoral and Council campaigns, organizing with the 2020 Census, and managing petition and public financing qualifications for the 2019 City Council races.

To learn more please follow the Albuquerque City Clerk’s office on Twitter or Facebook @CABQCityClerk.

City Clerk’s Office Announces New Website for Publicly Financed Candidates

$5 Contributions to Publicly Financed Candidates Can Now Be Made Online.

April 24, 2019

As the 2019 campaign season gets underway this coming May, publicly financed candidates will have a new tool for reaching voters. The City Clerk’s office has announced the release of a pilot project that will allow candidates to collect their five-dollar qualifying contributions electronically.

The Clean Campaign Portal is a website created this year as a joint project between the City Clerk’s office and the Department of Technology and Innovation. Envisioned by Mayor Keller and built by local company, HoldMyTicket, the website allows voters to select a candidate running in the district they live in, verifies their voter registration, and processes their five-dollar electronic contribution.

The Clean Campaign Portal will make public financing more accessible to both voters and candidates. By providing automatic voter verification, candidates will have the tools to reach their voters. And by allowing for electronic contributions, voters have one more avenue to donate to their candidate.

“This website is one more step in making our elections more accessible and transparent. I ran a publicly financed campaign to become Mayor and am excited to see how this tool enhances the process,” stated Mayor Keller.

The City Clerk’s office has taken other steps in creating a more accessible and transparent election season. Prior to the exploratory period, the City Clerk held a public hearing and issued regulations for the Election Code and the Open and Ethical Election Code to assist candidates running for office. The City Clerk’s Office also released a 2019 Candidate Guide, created a video on how to use the campaign reporting site, and published an FAQ. All of these documents are available on the Clerk’s website and are meant to increase transparency and accessibility of the 2019 local election.

City Clerk Certifies Ten Publicly Funded City Council Candidates

Seventy-seven percent of candidates qualify for public funds.

June 4, 2019

The 2019 Local Election cycle brought out 13 city council candidates seeking public funding in the four open districts. Yesterday, the City Clerk finished the process of verifying the $5 qualifying contributions, and certified 10 of the 13 candidates. Information on candidates who qualified can be found here: http://www.cabq.gov/vote/2019-candidates

The City Clerk’s office sought to make public funding more accessible by piloting a website that allowed for $5 qualifying contributions to be made electronically for the first time this year. Just shy of 1,000 total contributions were made on the website, with one candidate in particular getting nearly 50% of their contributions through the site.

“We believe the City’s public financing program has proven to be accessible, and we will continue to work with Mayor Keller and this administration to find more ways to improve and advance the program.” stated City Clerk, Katy Duhigg.

Candidates will have through June 28 to collect their 500 petition signatures to qualify as a candidate on the ballot. The City Clerk’s office will continue verification of those signatures throughout the month, and will post updates weekly.

Mayor Tim Keller Signs Reforms of City Code of Ethics, Lobbying Oversight Ordinance

Fixes to make city government more transparent, accountable to the public.

October 22, 2019

Following a unanimous City Council vote on the administration’s proposal, the ethics and lobbying landscape in Albuquerque will see changes after Mayor Tim Keller signed a package of significant reforms into law this morning at City Hall. The Mayor was joined by City Councilors and government accountability and transparency advocates.

“Our ethics reform package fixes shortcomings and closes loopholes in the oversight of elections and lobbying of elected officials, making sure that citizens have a local government that is transparent and accountable to them,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “These reforms are a promise kept to modernize these ordinances and make city government more open.”

The Code of Ethics governs the Board of Ethics, as well as disclosures required of elected officials. This reform takes politics out of appointments to the Board, sets clear guidelines regarding campaign complaint timelines, and increases disclosure requirements for elected officials.

The reform of the Lobbyist Ordinance makes public disclosure more meaningful, ensuring the public knows who has hired lobbyists and what issues they are hired to lobby on. It also increases the frequency with which lobbyists must file reports from one annual report to quarterly reports, making access to information timelier.

“Access to information is central to effective democracy,” said City Clerk Katy Duhigg. “Mayor Keller and the City Council stepped up to create a culture of transparency in the City, and these reforms remedy clear shortcomings in our ordinances.”

“Transparency is vital to our local government and elections,” said City Council President Klarissa Peña. “I was honored to work with my fellow Councilors, Mayor Keller, and City Clerk Katy Duhigg on this legislation to ensure our City’s accountability to our community.”

“Moving forward, it’s important for our government employees to know these reforms on ethics and transparency are our marching orders.” Said Councilor Borrego.

“Throughout history, innovations in democracy have come from cities.” Said Councilor Harris. “The City of Albuquerque is now a leader in ethics and transparency.”

“I was proud to be a co-sponsor of this bipartisan legislation.” Said Councilor Sanchez. “When it comes to ethics, we should be holding the very highest standard. There is no more important trust than the public’s trust.”

City Clerk Katy Duhigg Announces Resignation

Duhigg, who helped reform City election code, steps down to run for office

ALBUQUERQUE – City Clerk Katy Duhigg announced today she is resigning from her post. Duhigg, who has served as an advocate for fair elections, open government, and transparency in her time as City Clerk, is stepping down from her post in order to run for office.

“Katy has dedicated her career to making government more open and responsive,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “She spent her tenure at the City improving transparency and making government work better for our community. With Katy at the helm, we revamped the City election code and reformed the code of ethics to help fix shortcomings in the oversight of elections and lobbying.” 

“It has been an honor to serve Albuquerque over the past year and a half,” said Duhigg. “I am proud of the reforms we made to the City’s Election Code, public financing, and Code of Ethics. We brought City elections in line with state law and emphasized transparency and accessibility so elections would serve people over politics. The record-setting turnout in the recent Local Election clearly shows that the City is heading in the right direction.”

Duhigg has served as City Clerk since August 2018. In that role she was the City’s chief records custodian and oversaw the 2019 Local Election for the City that included 14 candidates, a host of bond initiatives, and runoff elections in City Council Districts 2 and 4. This election was unique in that it was the first consolidated election under the new election laws that will combine municipal elections with other agencies in odd-numbered years.

Although City Clerk is an unclassified position filled by Mayoral appointment and confirmed by City Council, the City will post the job publicly for all qualified candidates to submit an application.

Deputy Clerk Ethan Watson has been named Acting City Clerk in the interim.
