Where does this data come from?

Candidate lists are compiled from filings with the Secretary of State and County Clerks.  All candidates who filed are included, though some candidates may have withdrawn before Election Day and may not appear on your final ballot.

Endorsements were reported by the listed organizations on or around May 15th.  Updates may be sent to lucas@progressnownm.org. We’ll do our best to make timely updates available.
