Democrat seeking to unseat U.S. Rep. Luján faces ‘super uphill battle’

The race for the Democratic nomination in New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District pits a handsomely funded incumbent with an established political name, Ben Ray Luján, against Robert Blanch, an upstart transplant running on a populist platform and a shoestring budget.

2 incumbent lawmakers trailing in primary contests

ALBUQUERQUE — Five incumbent lawmakers survived primary election challenges, but two veteran lawmakers appeared headed for defeat in contests that remained tight a day after voters went to the polls.

Primary election information

The New Mexico primary election will be Tuesday, June 3, 2014. On election day, all polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m..

Voter Registration:

New Mexico has a closed primary: only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic Primary, and only registered Republicans can vote in the Republican Primary. Under New Mexico election laws, voters who declined to state a party affiliation when registering can’t vote in the primary.

The last day to register for this year’s primary election was May 6. If you re-registered and failed to indicate a political party, even if you had been a Democrat or Republican on previous registrations, you are listed as Declined to State (DTS) and cannot vote in the primary. Your Voter Information card lists your party if you indicated a political party. If you have questions, call 505-986-6280.
