The special runoff election between Republican John Lujan III and Democrat Tomas Uresti has drawn just 880 voters in person during the first two days of early voting. One day of early voting remains.

The total votes cast so far is almost two thirds of the total early votes cast in the HD124 runoff election last April. It is significantly below the pace of early voting from the November 3 special election, which coincided with a constitutional general election. Only 2,400 total votes were cast in that runoff election, in which Ina Minjarez defeated Delicia Herrera by 241 votes.
