Section 1-14-24 NMSA 1978 provides that an automatic recount of the vote is required when the canvass of returns for a state office in an election indicates that the margin between the two candidates receiving the greatest number of votes for the office is less than one-half of one percent of the total votes cast for that office in that election; and

In the June 2, 2020 Primary Election the canvass of returns indicates that the margin in the contest for County Commission District 3, between Jon Floyd Crunk and James M Russ II is less than one-half of one percent, and an automatic recount is required in that contest.

The recount will take place on Monday, June 29, 2020 at 8:00am in the Lincoln County Courthouse Conference Room.
