New Mexico’s primary election is on Tuesday June 2nd, making us one of the last four remaining states to participate, but no less important. Other than casting votes for the office of president, New Mexican primary voters will select their candidates for county offices, state legislators and for the United States Congress in closed elections. NM has a total of 45 delegates up for grabs; 34 pledged and 11 super delegates.
NMBC encourages you to check the status of your voter registration and make preparations early for casting your vote. Voters must be registered as Democrat, Republican or Libertarian to participate in the primaries, and registered voters cannot switch parties during same-day voter registration. Voter registration for the primaries closes on May 5.
You can check your registration status and make changes online at www.NMvote.org.
To be legally eligible to vote, you must:
- Be a New Mexico resident
- be a U.S. citizen
- not be legally declared mentally incapacitated
- not be a convicted felon, or a felon who has completed all of the terms and conditions of sentencing
- and be 18 years or older at the time of the next election
