Eddy County Commissioners Certify 2022 General Election Results

The Eddy County Commissioners have put their stamp of approval on last week’s election results. The official canvass, as it’s called, gives Democrat candidate Stephanie Garcia Richard a seat on the Public Lands Commission, over Independent candidate Larry Marker. A day before the canvass, Marker questioned the integrity of the election and voting machines to count write-in votes. He asked, unsuccesfully, that the Eddy County Commission delay certifying last week’s results. Instead, County Commissioners gave props to the county clerk for doing a good job in holding a fair and honest election.
