Can I Take Time Off For Voting? Yes
On election day a voter may absent himself from employment in which he is engaged for two hours for the purpose of voting between the time of opening and the time of closing the polls. The voter shall not be liable to any penalty for such absence; however, the employer may specify the hours during this period in which the voter may be absent.
Voting At The Polls On Election Day
Do I need to present identification when I vote?
You do not have to present a photo ID. Only if you are registering for the first time in New Mexico, and you submit the registration form by mail, then you must submit with the form a copy of (1) a current and valid photo identification; or (2) a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, student identification card or other government document, including identification issued by an Indian nation, tribe or pueblo that shows your name and current address. If you do not submit one of these forms of identification with your mailed-in, first time registration, then you would be required to present one of the forms of identification when voting in person or absentee.
Please note that some municipal jurisdictions in New Mexico do have voter id ordinances in place that require voter id be presented to vote in city elections. This includes the City of Albuquerque and the City of Rio Rancho.
What identification do I need to provide?
A physical form of identification is only required for first-time New Mexico voters who registered by mail and did not include identification with their voter registration application form.
Otherwise, you will be asked to provide a verbal or written statement of identification including your name, year of birth, and registered address.
Can I vote if my status is inactive?
Yes, an "inactive" status does not prohibit any registered voter to vote. You will vote like usual and your status will return to "active."

they are supposed to update their registration records with election officials before voting
