Your Vote Counts

During the COVID-19 Emergency, Consider Voting by Mail (Absentee)

Voting by Mail

Eligible registered voters can vote by mail.
Here is the process:

County clerks can begin mailing the absentee ballots out on October 6. When you receive the actual ballot, fill it out and mail it back right away so as not to miss the election day deadline.

Each ballot has a unique code and must be returned in the privacy envelope provided. You must provide your signature in the format used on your original voter registration application and the last four digits of your social security number.

Mail your completed ballot to your county clerk by October 27 or deliver it by hand before 7 p.m. on election day.

Voting In Person

Beginning on October 6 you may go to your county clerk’s office and vote in person.

Expanded early voting locations will open in each county beginning Saturday, October 17 and ending Saturday, October 31.

Election day is November 3.

Candidate and Ballot Information

For candidate and ballot information, go to VOTE411.ORG after September 15. Enter your address to see who is on your ballot and if and how they have answered questions about issues.

Voter Guides

The League of Women Voters promotes informed and active participation of citizens in government and produces non-partisan, comprehensive Voter Guides. The League of Women Voters does not support, oppose, or make recommendations regarding any political party or candidate. To help voters make informed choices, the League of Women Voters interviews candidates for most of the competitive races on key issues and prints their unedited responses. Summaries of proposed constitutional amendments and other ballot questions are also included in Voter Guides. Please check this website in early October of election years for the links to the statewide and local Voter Guides for Central New Mexico, Southern New Mexico, Los Alamos County, and Santa Fe County.

In 2020, our local leagues will prepare printed Voter Guides as they have in the past, but we'll also have an online Voter Guide covering the whole state: visit VOTE411.ORG after September 15.

Archived LWV Voter Guides: 2018, 2016, 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008.
