FINAL RESULTS: Doña Ana County June 7 primary election

DOÑA ANA COUNTY - A total of 15,400 voters in Doña Ana County cast their ballots in Tuesday's primary election, reflecting a turnout of 16.35% of registered major party voters, according to the Doña Ana County Clerk's Office.

This marked a decrease from the 2020 election, when 16,200 Doña Ana County residents cast their ballots, according to the county clerk's office.

“We typically see a decline in voters in the even numbered years where there is not a presidential race,” wrote Doña County Clerk Amanda López Askin in a statement. “We expect that this number will increase with the General Election, where voters who chose not to register with a major party during the Primary, are now eligible to vote. I would like to thank our staff for their diligence in making sure we run a fair and transparent election.”
