New Mexico Ballot To List GOP First

Republican candidates will appear first on the ballot in New Mexico's general election.

A drawing last week determined ballot position.

The secretary of state's office said a GOP candidate's name will be listed first in a contested race, and then the Democrat. A minor party candidate, if there's one, appears next and then an independent.

There's no minor party candidate for statewide office in the Nov. 4 election, but a Constitution Party candidate is running for McKinley County sheriff.
