Voting in New Mexico
Find your district and polling place
Voter registration closes 28 days prior to an election.
- You may register to vote on two different forms – either the New Mexico Certificate of Registration form or the National Voter Registration Form.
- The New Mexico Certificate of Registration Form (“New Mexico Form”) is available at any county clerk’s office, the Office of the Secretary of State, or many state agencies that serve specific clients at those offices such as motor vehicle offices and offices offering public assistance.
- A voter may request the New Mexico form by mail, telephone, or in person. The New Mexico form is on cardstock, is a permanent record and is not available online. It may not be duplicated. You may also register with a Third-Party Registration Agent. The National Voter Registration Form (“National Form”) is available online at www.fec.gov. This form may be downloaded or duplicated by any voter or organization.
