Request Public Records

Requests for public records are governed by the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Sections 14-2-1 to -12. 

The New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act is intended to provide the public with access to government records.  Each state agency and local governmental entities have designated a records custodian to whom requests to inspect records should be addressed. Source: New Mexico Attorney General’s Inspection of Public Records Compliance Guide [PDF]
