County Clerk

Once an individual is convicted of a felony, their right to vote is suspended until the imposed judgment and sentence is discharged by the State of New Mexico Corrections Department and the County Clerk’s Office Bureau Of Elections receives a copy of the official Certificate of Discharge.

By law we will be unable to process any voter registration application or request for change until we receive your discharge certificate.    

You may submit your discharge certificate in three ways:

  • Fax a copy of your official Certificate of Discharge issued by the New Mexico Department of Corrections with a written request to re-instate your voter rights to (505) 468-1293; ATTENTION: Bureau of Elections
  • Mail in a copy of your discharge certificate and written request to have your voter rights re-instated to:
  • Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office Bureau of Elections 
  • One Civic Plaza NW, 6th Floor
  • Albuquerque, NM 87102-9854
  • Stop by our office with your certificate of discharge and ask to have your voter rights re-instated.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (505) 468-1291 or email us at clerk@bernco.gov

The Runoff Election for City Council Districts 2 and 4 is required under the Top-Two Runoff Election rule which requires candidates for Albuquerque City Council to receive fifty percent or more of the votes cast for the office in question. If no candidate receives 50% of the votes, the two candidates who receive the highest number of votes automatically become the candidates for the runoff election.
