National Voter Registration Month Produces Over 29K New Mexico Voter Registrations and Updates

2018 General Election Voter Registration Closes on October 9 

SANTA FE – Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver announces that 29,136 New Mexico voters registered or updated their registration during September’s National Voter Registration Month. The total number of registered voters in New Mexico as of September 28, 2018 is 1,250,247. Secretary Toulouse Oliver encourages all eligible voters to use NMvote.org to register to vote or to update their registration before the Tuesday, October 9, 2018 deadline so that they may participate in the upcoming general election.

“I’m committed to expanding voting access by making voting as simple and convenient as possible for all eligible New Mexicans. Having online voter registration through NMvote.org is critical to that goal,” Secretary Toulouse Oliver said. “The fact that so many people are using NMvote.org to register or update shows that when eligible voters have convenient access to election resources more New Mexicans participate in our democracy and make their voices heard.”

Of September’s 29,136 total, 11,999 people used the Secretary of State’s NMvote.org online portal, meaning that over 40 percent of all new or updated registrations were processed using the online voter registration system. 

In September 2016, during the last general election cycle, 22,717 people registered or updated their registration using NMvote.org. In September 2017, 1,990 used the NMvote.org online portal to register or to update.
