Voters in New Mexico who follow the recommended guidelines should be confident in the efficient delivery of their mailed ballots for the 2020 General Election. Though 46 states received a USPS letter with concerns about the General Election, New Mexico received a USPS letter explaining that “your voters should have sufficient time to receive, complete, and return their ballots by the state’s deadlines.” Even so, we encourage you to complete and return your ballot early.
