KUNM Call In Show 6/2 8a: 

Officials are expecting a high turnout in New Mexico’s primary election June 7th.  Donald Trump has already won enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination for president. Bernie Sanders shows no signs of dropping out even as Hillary Clinton scoops up more delegates for the Democratic party nomination. But there are many state and local races. Republicans are seeking to hold on to the state House of Representatives and possibly take control of the state Senate.

The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is May 10th, 2016. New Mexico doesn’t have open primary elections,  so if you’re not registered as a Democrat or a Republican in this state, you won’t be able to vote in those party primaries.

New Mexico’s independent voters could be allowed to participate in primary elections if a proposed constitutional amendment is successful.

KUNM Call In Show 5/29 8a: 

New Mexico's primary election is next Tuesday, June 3. The most high profile race is for a face-off against incumbent Republican Governor Susana Martinez. It pits 5 Democrats against one another, but there is plenty of intrigue across the ballot. 

How have you decided amongst the candidates... or have you? Are you an Independent who wishes you could vote in the primary?
