Voter Information Portal
Your Voter Information Portal
Welcome to the New Mexico Voter Information Portal – your one-stop shop for voting information! You can use this site to register to vote or update your current voter registration, request an absentee ballot online, find a voting location, view important election dates, request a military or overseas ballot, or look up third-party voter registration agents. I’ll keep looking for ways to improve the voting process in New Mexico so please feel free to contact my office if you have any ideas or suggestions.
If you have any election-related questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office at 505-827-3600 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Thank you, NM Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver
