RATON — Colfax County Clerk Rayetta M. Trujillo alerts voters the time is approaching to register to vote in New Mexico primary elections to be held June 2, 2020.
“To vote in the primary you must be affiliated with one of the three major parties: Democrat, Republican, or Libertarian,” Trujillo says. “The deadline to register is May 5, 2020.
“As we are in lockdown and no one may enter the building, voters need to do this by going to the NM Secretary of State’s website: www.sos.state.nm.us.”
If you go to the Voter Portal, you may update your voter registration and request an absentee ballot.
If you need further assistance, please call the county clerk at 575-445-5551.
The same goes for registering to vote in the general election. If you need to update your voter registration or if you are a first time voter, please go to the Secretary of State’s website.
Registration will be accomplished so long as your current information matches the information on file with New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division.
If you need to adjust your information in a way not available to you online, contact the county clerk at the number above, and she will do the necessary paperwork so your registration can be corrected by mail.
