Voter FAQ

When is Election Day?

Tuesday, Nov. 2

When are the polls open?

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

How can I tell if I'm registered?

Anyone in the state can look for their registration info at

How do I find out where to vote?

In Bernalillo County, should do the trick. You'll have access to a map and a sample ballot, if you'd like to think things over before you get to your polling location.

Do I have to bring ID to the polls?

First-time voters who registered by mail and didn't submit an ID have to show a current ID. A driver's license, student or tribal ID, utility bill, bank statement, or government document will work. Everyone else should only have to state their name, registration address and birth year.

When is my absentee ballot due?

It must be in the County Clerk's Office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Note: That does NOT say it has to be postmarked by Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. It has to actually be there physically. If you fail to mail it in time, you have to hand-deliver it to the County Clerk's Office. In Bernalillo, that's in City Hall (One Civic Plaza NW) on the sixth floor. If you requested a mail-in ballot, you cannot vote at a regular polling location.

What if I have problems at the polls?

You can call Common Cause New Mexico's election protection hotline at (866) OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683).
