New Mexico residents 18 and older can now register to vote online through Motor Vehicle Division offices throughout the state.

Voters who conduct a transaction at MVD will now be offered the opportunity to register to vote online. The information will be transmitted to New Mexico county clerks electronically, eliminating delays and improving the efficiency of the voter registration process.

"We are excited to be able to provide this service to New Mexico voters," Secretary of State Dianna Duran said. "this is yet another part of our modernization program, and our continued efforts to make the entire voting and elections process more convenient for New Mexicans."

All voters will be able to update their voter registration information online from their personal computers by mid-summer of next year, according to Duran.
