Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in New Mexico if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of New Mexico
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
You are NOT eligible to vote in New Mexico if:
  • You have been legally declared "mentally incompetent" by a court
  • You are currently serving a sentence including incarceration, parole, probation, or extended supervision for a felony conviction
Restorative Requirements
  • If you have completed a felony sentence, including any term of incarceration, parole, supervision, period of probation, or you have been pardoned, then you are immediately eligible to register to vote
You may preregister to vote in New Mexico
  • if you will be 18 by Election Day
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the federal voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You will have the following identification options when completing the form:
  • Complete Social Security Number
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Please use our eligibility tool to find out if you can vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in New Mexico before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their New Mexico voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ New Mexico address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. If you spend most of your time at school in New Mexico, are involved in your school community, and intend to make it your primary residence, then you should be able to establish voting residency under New Mexico law.

Will I need ID?

If you are registering to vote for the first time by mail, you will need to provide a copy of a valid ID. Acceptable forms of ID include:
  • Valid Tribal ID
  • Current and Valid Photo ID
  • Government Issued Document that shows your current name and address
  • Valid Student ID
  • Utility Bill, Bank Statement, Government Check, or Paycheck that Shows your current name and address
Physical id is only required for first time voters who registered by mail and didn't include id. You can show id from the above list. Some municipalities, such as the City of Rio Rancho, may require id for city elections (not state or federal elections). Contact your County Clerk's Office for details.
