Welcome to the new home of the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office online!

We changed the look and layout of our website, but all the resources you need – whether it’s to register to vote online, file a business registration, submit a campaign finance report, get information about our Notary services, and much more – is all still here.

We’ve put together some links here to the most frequently used pages on our website to help you get used to the new layout:

Voting & Elections – Information on voting and elections in the state of New Mexico (register to vote, update your voter registration, fin our about upcoming elections, and more)

Candidates & Campaigns – Information on how to become a candidate and  about complying with campaign finance disclosure and reporting requirements.

Business Services – Start a business, maintain a business or get general information on registered businesses in New Mexico.

Notary & Apostille – Become a notary, renew your notary commission, or obtain information about apostilles or certification of official documents. 

Check out the “Menu” button at the top left of the homepage to find even more resources offered by our Office.

Be sure to follow our Office on social media, too. You can follow us on Facebook by clicking here. And you can find us on Twitter here.
