Voter Turnoff

In Tuesday's election New Mexico's voter turnout was just under 40 percent - .398.

There are 1,287,237 eligible voters in New Mexico.

Republican Susana Martinez , in what the Albuquerque Journal called a "resounding win" received 288,482 votes for governor. Perhaps the Journal was thinking that 57.3 percent of the votes cast in the governor's contest was a lot of votes.

It's 22.4 percent of eligible voters. In other words, in New Mexico, when roughly 1 in 5  people think you should be governor, you're Queen for the Day.
