Register to Vote
Pick up a voter registration application form or print the national form online, fill it out, then mail it to the New Mexico Secretary of State's Office or your local County Clerk's Office. If you are not sure where to send it, you can look it up on our website or call us at 1-800-477-3632.
First Time Registrants
If you are registering for the first time in New Mexico, and you submit the registration form by mail, then you must submit with the form a copy of (1) a current and valid photo identification; or (2) a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, student identification card or other government document, including identification issued by an Indian nation, tribe or pueblo that shows your name and current address. If you do not submit one of these forms of identification with your mailed-in, first time registration, then you would be required to present one of the forms of identification when voting in person or absentee.
Change your Voter Registration
If you change your name or move you must fill out a new voter registration form and submit to your local County Clerk's Office or the Secretary of State's Office. You must also fill out a new form if you want to change your party affiliation.
