ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Starting Tuesday, people in Albuquerque will have same-day voter registration for the first time. Same-day voter registration will be available until the last day of early voting.
Alex Curtas, communications director for the New Mexico Secretary of State, said same-day registration is being phased in.
“In future elections, you'll be able to go to any voting site on election day and register and vote,” he said.
Curtas said people will only be allowed to register during early voting, and in some counties they will only be able to do it at the county clerk's office.
“There are certain counties like here in Bernalillo where when the larger early vote locations open up on October 19 that you can go to any of those in Bernalillo County and some other counties and you'll be able to register on that day or update your registration and vote on that same day,” he said.
Curtas said people should contact their county clerk or the Secretary of State's Office if they have voting questions.
