Primaries and Caucuses - Rock the Vote

New Mexico has closed primaries. Voters registered with a particular party may only vote in that party's primary.

Am I required to select a political party in order to complete the registration form?

  • No. You can choose to select a political party affiliation if you wish, or you can decide to not be affiliated with any political party. The choice is yours to make and does not impact the validity of your registration form.

  • Any applicant may choose to check the “No Party” box on the application; however, New Mexico has a closed primary, so only those registered in a major political party may participate in the primary election. The major political parties in New Mexico are:

    • Democratic Party

    • Republican Party

    • Libertarian Party

  • Voters who are affiliated with all other political parties or voters who have no political party affiliation may not vote in primary elections in New Mexico. However, all voters regardless of political affiliation are invited to participate in all other elections.
