Party Affiliation

Selecting Party Affiliation
The state of New Mexico does not hold Open Primary Elections. To be eligible to vote in the Primary Election, individuals must be registered as a Democrat or Republican. A registered voter who wishes to change party affiliation in time to vote in a primary election must do so 28 days before the election.

Each party has the option of holding a Presidential Caucus several months previous to the June Primary Election for the purpose of nominating a candidate for the Office of President. For more information concerning party activity, contact the party chairman listed below.
