Hi New Mexico, if you want to vote  in the 2022 midterm elections there   are three steps you need to take.

Register,  Make your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If you have  a New Mexico driver's license, you can register   online.

If not, you’ll need to print out an  application form and mail it in. Links to both are   at But either way you  register, you need to do it by October 11th.   Now if you miss that date, though don’t  worry.

You can still register in person at   your county clerk’s office during the early  voting period and on election day.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town on  election day or just want to vote early   from the comfort of your own couch, you can  request that your ballot be mailed to you.   You have until November 3rd to request an  absentee ballot, but the sooner you ask for one,   the sooner you can get it, fill it out, and mail  it back, or drop it off in a Dropbox or at your   Board of Elections office by November 8th. You can also vote in person early from October   11th through November 5th at an early  voting location. You can find all those   locations and their hours at this link.

Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls are open from 6am to 8pm.   If this is your first time voting in New Mexico  and you registered by mail, you may need to show   a proof of address. A New Mexico drivers license,  state ID, student ID, military or tribal ID or a   utility bill, paycheck, or bank statement with  your name and address on it will all work.   So once you have your plan for how you’re going  to vote, where you need to go, and what time   you’re going to vote, You just need to follow the  plan, and go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot   at so you have time  to research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. We’ve put all the links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at

Thank you for voting!
