This November, the New Mexico Libertarian Party has nominees for state house in twelve districts. This is the most candidates on the ballot for that office in New Mexico for any party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, since the 1910’s decade.
New Mexico has 70 state house districts. In 2018 the Libertarian Party only had two candidates for State House in New Mexico.
Although the Green Party was strong in New Mexico in the 1990’s, it never had more than four nominees for state house in any one election year.
This year the New Mexico Libertarian Party also has five nominees for State Senate.
