  3. Restoration of Voter Rights (Post Felony)

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 are unable to process any voter registration application or request for change until we receive a discharge certificate.

OPTIONS TO SUBMIT A DISCHARGE CERTIFICATE:

1. Email or fax a copy of your official Certificate of Discharge to clerk@bernco.gov or (505) 468-1293; ATTENTION: Bureau of Elections

2. Mail a copy of your official Certificate of Discharge and written request to have your voter rights re-instated to:

Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office
Bureau of Elections
415 Silver Ave. SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102

3. Stop by our office with your certificate of discharge and ask to have your voter rights re-instated.

Please call (505) 468-1291 or email clerk@bernco.gov with any questions.
