ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The countdown is on until the midterm elections on Nov. 8.

Early voting runs from Oct. 11 until Nov. 5. October 11 is also the deadline to get registered by mail. If you’re unable to register that way, New Mexico also allows people to register to vote on the day they vote.

If you want to request an absentee ballot, you have until Nov. 3 to do so. For that ballot to count, it must be received by Nov. 8 at 7 p.m., either through the mail or by dropping it off at either a polling place or your county clerk’s office on that day.

The state’s voter information portal also allows you to learn where your voting location is, how you can get there and what races will be on your ballot.

The Voter Information Portal is available on the Secretary of State’s website.
