New Mexico State University officials are starting to get the word out about the General Obligation Bond and its potential impacts on the university, so that voters are educated and aware when they go to the polls.

The General Obligation Bond projects for NMSU include $19 million for renovations at Hardman and Jacobs halls at NMSU in Las Cruces; $1 million for infrastructure renovations at the Grants branch campus; $2 million for Dona Ana Community College; $1 million for renovations at the Carlsbad branch and $1 million for Alamogordo-NMSU.

"The General Obligation Bond projects on this year's ballot are critically important to New Mexico State University," said NMSU President Barbara Couture. "Our request this year includes both a vital renovation on the Las Cruces campus as well as important projects at our community college campuses across the state. Accomplishing these improvements will greatly assist the university in reaching its goals as it works to best serve the people of New Mexico."

The election is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012.
