SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The state’s top elections official says New Mexicans can register to vote online when doing business at a Motor Vehicle Division office.

Secretary of State Dianna Duran said the electronic voter registration started this week for people who are renewing a driver’s license, registering a vehicle or conducting other transactions at MVD offices across New Mexico.

By mid-2015, voters will be able to go online from a personal computer to update their registration information, such as making a change of address or party affiliation. Paper applications will continue to be used for new voter registration other than in MVD offices.

Laws enacted last year provided for the online registration provisions.

The National Conference of State Legislatures reports that two dozen states have authorized some form of online voter registration.
