You may register to vote and cast a ballot on the same day during any early voting period, at your county’s clerk’s office or other alternate designated early voting location, or at your local polling place but only on Election Day. You must show the following acceptable ID and proof of residence:
- a New Mexico driver’s license or New Mexico identification card issued through the motor vehicle division of the taxation and revenue department;
- any document that contains an address in the county together with a photo identification card; or
- a current valid student photo identification card from a post-secondary educational institution in New Mexico accompanied by a current student fee statement that contains your address in the county.
Same day registration and voting on Election Day is available only for state-wide regular elections. For state-wide special elections, same day registration and voting is available only during any early voting period, but not on Election Day.
