The 2016 election is just a few weeks away, and New Mexico residents who have not yet registered to vote have very little time left to do so.

In the state, you have three ways to register to vote: online, by mail, or in person. In all three cases, the deadline to register is Tuesday, October 11th. 

Note: New Mexico does not have same-day voter registration, meaning if you do not register to vote by October 11th, you will not be able to vote on November 8th.

Here’s what you need to do to register to vote in New Mexico:


How to Register to Vote Online

The easiest way to register to vote in New Mexico is to to do online by visiting this webpage.

The process is pretty self-explanatory; you will, however, need a valid drivers license number or state identification number, plus your social security number. If you don’t have all of these things, you’ll have to register by mail or in person.

The deadline to register online is Tuesday, October 11th. 


How to Register to Vote By Mail

The other option you have is to print an official voter registration form, fill out it, and send it to the county clerk or registrar of voters in your county. The deadline to register to vote by mail is Tuesday, October 11th.
