NOTICE REGARDING CHECKS PROVIDED FOR PAYMENT
Beginning April 1, 2015, the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office will start utilizing the Conversion of Checks to ACH banking services through Wells Fargo Fiscal Agent Banking Services. This service evaluates checks for conversion eligibility and then, if applicable, converts the checks to an ACH debit transaction. The ACH transaction is then charged to the consumer's bank account instead of the paper check. This is official 30 day notification to our customers, taxpayers, and other payees that your checks received for payment may be converted to an ACH debit transaction.
''When you provide a check as payment to the Secretary of State, you authorize the State of New Mexico to either use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.”

There is no price reduction for buying voter data on more than one media. If for example, the same AVRS data is requested on both diskette and a printed list, the requester must pay full price for both media types.
Some of the voters in our AVRS database are marked inactive. These are people who have not voted in several election cycles or who, according to the National Change of Address database, have moved and have not responded to letters from the county clerks. You may include these voters in your request if you wish. Our experience is that people who are doing direct mailings often prefer not to include these voters; however, those who want to validate petition signatures definitely want their lists to include inactive voters.

It is possible to have names and addresses of voters printed in label format on plain paper. The advantage of this option is that you can copy the labels onto regular label stock each time you want to do a mailing.
Householding means that if there is more than one voter at the same address with the same last name, only a label for the first voter will be generated.
If you are interested in requesting Voter Data Information, contact Bernadine Lucero at 505-827-3635 or 1-800-477-3632 or by Email .
