Primary election 2022: Unofficial results for San Juan County races
FARMINGTON — Current state Rep. Anthony Allison has won the Democratic primary in the race for the District 4 seat, surviving a challenge by Christina J. Aspaas.
Allison carried the lead throughout the evening of June 7 over Aspaas, a current member of the Central Consolidated School District Board of Education.
There are 57,630 registered voters in San Juan County and 13,288 ballots were cast in the New Mexico primary elections on June 7, according to the state Secretary of State's office.
The primary had several uncontested candidates for the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian parties on the ballots. However, there were six races in the county where more than one candidate was seeking their parties' nomination.
Among those races was the District 1 seat on the San Juan County Commission, which had three Democratic candidates.
Incumbent GloJean B. Todacheene sustained a lead over challengers Stanley Wauneka Sr. and Albert J. Paul throughout the evening.
In the county commission District 2 race, Zac "Zachariah" J. George was the sole Democratic candidate, but the Republican side had candidates Gary M. McDaniel and Ervin Chavez.
McDaniel clutched the nomination over Chavez.
Here are the unofficial results from the primary elections. The state representative races for districts 5, 65, and 69 encompass more than one county, so the unofficial results below are San Juan County only.
