Visit the Secretary of State’s Voter Portal to find information on voter registration, county clerk offices, absentee and early voting, and polling location. This information is also available at your County Clerk’s office.
In New Mexico, you can still register at the county clerk and vote Same-Day through October 31. You can find county clerk information here.
Early and absentee voting
Many people are rightly nervous about voting in person because of Covid-19 and there is also concern about ballots reaching county clerks in time because of rumors about mailing delays with the U.S. Postal Service. The best way to manage these concerns is to vote early by absentee ballot.
Visit the Secretary of State’s Voter Portal for information on Early and Absentee Voting. The website has information on filling an online absentee ballot or downloading a ballot and returning it to your county clerk, as well as how to contact your county clerk for information.
Accessible Absentee Ballots are available or the first time, making it possible for those with visual impairments to complete an absentee ballot.
If you have any questions:
- contact your County Clerk
- call the Secretary of State Toll Free : 1-800-477-3632

CVNM’s Policy Priorities
As our leaders forge a new path forward for our environment and public health, we will be focusing on three major policies that we’ve been working on for years. Now that we have the right people in office who are listening to their constituents and reflecting their deeply-rooted shared conservation values, the door is finally open to make progress on these important issues. After eight years of the most anti-conservation Governor New Mexico has ever had, there is progress to be made on every issue you care about.
