Election 2016

Candidate profiles and Q&As

Welcome to the Albuquerque Journal’s coverage of the New Mexico races in the 2016 election.

Here you can find key dates and voter information, links to published news stories and information and questionnaires for many of the state and local candidates in contested races.

This is a work in progress and ABQjournal will continue adding content from the newspaper including endorsements from our Editorial Board as these become available.

Our coverage of legislative races will focus on contested contests in some of the most high-profile races around the state. We’ll also have stories on congressional, judicial and county-level races, as well as the presidential race.

Contact Dan Boyd dboyd@abqjournal.com or dbaker@abqjournal.com – if you are seeking additional information. For official election information — including where to register to vote — call your county clerk.

The election information telephone number for the Bernalillo County clerk is (505) 468-1290. We hope you find these resources helpful. Get informed, get prepared and happy voting.

— Dan Boyd, Journal Capitol Bureau Chief
