As of today (October 19th), there are only 15 days until Election Day on November 3! But DON’T WAIT until then to vote:
- If you aren’t registered to vote, you can register and do same-day voting at your county clerk office.
- Absentee ballots have been being mailed out. You can mail them back – right away is ideal – or drop them off at designated dropboxes or at the county clerk office. Starting Oct 17, you can also drop them off at in-person early voting locations.
- The last day to request an absentee ballot is Oct 20.
- Go to NMVote.org to get information on county clerk offices and the voting process.

Thank you everyone who decides to support these candidates during this extremely important election cycle. As a reminder, for those who need it, the last day to request an Absentee Ballot application is Tuesday October 20. If you are mailing you ballot back, make sure to do so by October 27, to ensure it gets received in time. If you are worried, you can deliver it to your county clerk office by 7:00 p.m. election day, to a polling place between now and October 31 during early in-person voting, or to a polling location on election day.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS when filling out and returning your absentee ballot. It can be confusing.
