County Clerk

An absentee ballot may be cast by any eligible voter.

Absentee voting is governed under the Absent Voter Act (Chapter 1, Article 6 NMSA 1978)

To request an absentee ballot:

  • Complete the absentee ballot application online (not yet available for the 2020 general election). Your absentee ballot will be mailed to you. When it arrives, fill out and sign your ballot, and return it in the postage paid envelope provided.
    • You must have a NM driver's license to use this option.
  • The next best option is to download the application here. Print, complete and sign according to the instructions, and mail it using your own postage stamp. 
  • The other two options require the Clerk's Office to mail an application to you. When it arrives, complete the application and mail it back. When the Clerk's Office receives and processes your application, then an absentee ballot will be mailed.  
    • Request an application by phone (505) 243-VOTE (8683), option 2. 
    • Email your request to clerk@bernco.gov

Please call (505) 243-VOTE (8683) with any questions regarding absentee voting in Bernalillo County.
