Below is a round-up of links to SFR's pop quizzes with school board candidates and our editorial endorsements for this year's extremely important election.


Winter storm notwithstanding, TODAY is the ONLY DAY you can vote in a new SCHOOL BOARD for Santa Fe! Polls are open 7 am - 7 pm; more information on where to go after the jump.

First things first: only voters registered in LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS 1, 2 and 4 can vote today; districts 3 and 5 aren't up for election. (See your voter registration card, which will list your precinct and district under "local school district," on the right side.)

Not sure whom to vote for? Read our pop quizzes of school board candidates from District 1 and District 2 (District 4 candidate Linda Trujillo is running unopposed, even though hers is not the only name on the ballot) or cut to the chase with SFR's official candidate endorsements.

For those who are in Dists. 1, 2 and 4, here's where to go, via the Santa Fe County Clerk's office:
