Voter Ballots Available Online

New Mexico – New Mexicans wanting a preview of their voting options for the Nov. 2 general election can find sample ballots on the secretary of state's website.

The website provides sample ballots by precinct in all 33 counties.

Voters can click on their precinct and see the state and local candidates on their ballot as well as review proposed constitutional amendments and bond issues. The location of polling places for each precinct also is provided.

A voter guide on the website offers pros and cons of the amendments and information about the property tax-backed bond issues.

Absentee voting started Tuesday, and early in-person voting at satellite polling places will begin Oct. 16.
