  • You must register at least 28 days prior to the election in order to vote.
  • As of December 2014, New Mexico is one of the 35 states that have not implemented online voter registration. In 2013, New Mexico passed a law which authorizes a system by which voters may update existing records electronically. The system has not yet been implemented.[1]

The EPI examines election administration performance and assigns an average percentage score based on 17 indicators of election performance. These indicators were chosen in order to determine both the convenience and integrity of these three phases of an election: registration, voting and counting. New Mexico received an overall score of 64 percent.[3]
