SANTA FE (AP) - Voting is under way in New Mexico's primary election.

Absentee voting began Tuesday.

Registered voters must fill out an application to obtain an absentee ballot and can cast their ballots in person at their county clerk's office.

It's also possible to request a ballot application by mail or by calling the clerk's office, and later return the ballot by mail or deliver it in person.

Early voting will start at more locations later this month. There will be 19 alternate voting sites in Bernalillo County from May 17 through May 31, and Santa Fe County will have four satellite voting sites.

Election Day is June 3. Only registered Democrats and Republicans can cast ballots to determine their party nominees for the November general election.
