When are the polls open today?

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

How do I find out where to vote on Election Day?

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.

How can I tell if I’m registered?

Anyone in the state can look for their registration info at

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.

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).

When is my absentee ballot due?

It must be in the County Clerk’s Office by 7 p.m. on today. 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.
