Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 4, 2014 New Mexico General Election

New Mexico

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

In addition to the office contest shown on our ballots, you may find additional county, city and local office contests on the ballot you will be given at the polls like commissioner, assessor, court judge, magistrate, councilor, and sheriff. Due to our limited resources we were unable to cover those contests.
