SANTA FE – Even after a recount, the Libertarian Party’s candidate for governor failed to win enough write-in votes last month to secure a spot on the Nov. 6 ballot, according to an unofficial tally released Thursday by election workers.
The State Canvassing Board will meet next week to consider certifying the results.
The low vote total, meanwhile, could also trigger a fight over the Libertarians’ future as a major party in New Mexico – because they won’t have a nominee for governor on the ballot this year if the recount results are confirmed.
