Voter Registration Information

How do I register to vote in New Mexico?

What do I need to provide when I register to vote by mail?

  • 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 will be required to present one of the forms of identification when voting in person or absentee.
  • Once the county clerk has accepted the form for filing, individuals or groups may make a public records request. However, the day and month of birth and the Social Security number on the form is always privacy protected.

How do I check whether I am registered in New Mexico?

  • You can check your registration status using the Secretary of State’s online Voter Services, available here.

Where can I get a Voter Registration Application Form?

  • In New Mexico, we have distributed registration forms throughout county clerks offices. The forms are also available at the Secretary of State’s office in Santa Fe, Motor Vehicle Division offices, and many other public assistance offices. You can also call our office at 1.800.477.3632 and ask for a registration form to be mailed to you or click here to download a Voter Registration Form from our website.
