Turnout was 25 percent in last week’s primary
Some 25 percent of registered Democrats and Republicans in New Mexico voted in last week’s primary election, The Associated Press reported.
That’s below average. Since 1996, turnout in presidential election year primaries has averaged 28 percent.
The highest turnout was 56 percent in Harding County, the AP reported. That’s the least-populated county in the state.
The state’s second-largest county – Doña Ana – had the lowest turnout, just 15 percent.
