Next Tuesday, May 8, is the last day to register to vote in order to cast a ballot in the June 5 Primary Election. Voters must be registered Republican, Democrat or Libertarian in order to vote as well, due to New Mexico’s closed primary system.

In-person voting will be available at each county clerk’s office during regular hours, and county clerks will begin sending absentee ballots beginning May 8.

County-wide early voting begins May 19, with satellite voting centers available. The last day of county-wide early voting will be June 2.

Primary Election Day, June 5 is also the last day for voters to return absentee ballots in person to their county clerk’s office or polling location.
