  OK, good night by Matthew Reichbach

There hasn't been any real updates in over an hour (excpet the state Reps. Mary Helen Garcia and Tom Anderson appear to have lost).

So good night and thank you to everyone who read this tonight. We'll do it again on general election night -- and maybe we'll find some more reasons to do live blogs between now and then.

Remember, if you wish to donate to thank us for putting on this live blog, you can do so at the top of the post at NMTelegram.com.

  Things are slowing down by Matthew Reichbach

OK, things are slowing down in the counting of votes. Rio Arriba County apparently is, well, being Rio Arriba County. Most of the big races are decided. We'll keep updating if something happens, but the more regular updates are coming to an end -- it's time for me to write the Morning Word.

Thanks to the Santa Fe Reporter for hosting the site.

  There goes one piece of trivia by Matthew Reichbach

With king's likely win, that means that Gary King is the first candidate to fail to reach 20 percent at the pre-primary convention and then go on to win the primary. 

That piece of trivia, I believe, reached across both parties and in all statewide and federal races until King's victory today.

  Johnson leads in HD 5 by Matthew Reichbach

House District 5, currently held by Sandra Jeff, currently has Doreen Johnson leading Charles Long.

Jeff was booted from the ballot for not having enough valid signatures. She has said she will run a write-in campaign this fall. There is no Republican candidate.

  King still trending up by Matthew Reichbach

Gary King is still trending up. 

While Alan Webber has a big portion of Santa Fe County's votes, he isn't really winning anywhere else. 

Howie Morales is cleaning up in southwest New Mexican counties -- but these aren't nearly as heavily populated as Bernalillo County (where King is winning) or Santa Fe (Webber). 

There are a lot of Democratic votes in the Hispanic North, most of which hasn't come in yet (King is taking 43.58 percent of San Miguel County's votes that are counted so far), so it will be interesting to see where those votes go.

  King still only candidate over 30 percent. by Matthew Reichbach

Despite the big numbers from Santa Fe County for Webber, King is slowly pushing his total up again. He's now at 31.5 percent. Webber remains in seconds with 25.23 percent.

  Martinez to speak soon by Matthew Reichbach

She'll want to speak in time for the 10:00 news. Unlikely the Democratic candidate will be decided by then for the TV news broadcasts.

  And in the CD3 race... by Matthew Reichbach

Ben Ray Lujan leads (as everyone thought he would). But in early numbers, Robert Blanch is getting nearly 1/4 of the votes. Some thought he would struggle to get 10 percent (and he might still finish very low).

  While we wait for election-day numbers to be counted by Matthew Reichbach

I have a few thoughts on the new Secretary of State website. It is definitely a better-looking and cleaner site. 

I would like an option to have ALL the races on one page instead of separating the federal races, statewide races, legislative races, etc. on different pages. 

The county-level stuff is nice, though.

  On those weird vote totals from earlier by Matthew Reichbach

The office says their website was showing incorrect results for the Democratic primary for governor because Bernalillo County sent them test numbers by mistake.

But Liz Hamm with Bernalillo County says they did not send any test numbers and that they are still troubleshooting the issue. The county thinks it could be a voting machine issue.
