SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Eligible voters in New Mexico have until May 10 to register to vote in the June 7 primary election - and they can do so easily online.

Secretary of State Brad Winter says he encourages voters to use a new online voter registration system that allows eligible citizens with current or expired New Mexico driver’s licenses to register via the internet.

Voters can also register in person at any Motor Vehicle Division or county clerk’s office. Seventeen-year-olds who will be of voting age by the time of the general elections in November can also register now and even vote in the primaries.

Winter says he wants New Mexicans to have access to efficient and transparent elections.

There were 1.2 million registered voters in New Mexico as of January 2015.
