VOTING and REGISTERING To VOTE
Legislation is being proposed during the 2019 Legislative Session about new voting regulations, such as same day voter registration and automatic voter registration through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) as well as open primaries (where decline-to-state or independent voters can have a voice, something I support). I will share such information as it is addressed in the session. Meanwhile, make sure you are registered to vote at your current address. You can check your registration online at the website listed in the next section.

Guidelines for ABSENTEE VOTING BY MAIL
First, get an “application for an absentee ballot.” You can either:
Fill out your application and return it to the County Clerk by mail or in person.
Ballots will be mailed until four days before the given election.
Fill out your ballot and return it to the County Clerk. Don’t wait! Do it right away! Your completed ballot must be in the Clerk’s Office by Election Day. (NOTE: postage to return a ballot is $1.21—or three first class stamps will do.)
On Election Day, you can drop off your Absentee ballot at any poll site in Bernalillo County.
ELECTION DAY VOTING
Election Day voting takes place from 7 am to 7 pm. There are 70 voting locations throughout the County.
