Election Notes:
  • The statewide summary appears to contain a misprint for Patton in McKinley County. The stated county figure of 2,057 makes Patton's statewide total not match the stated total. The detailed precinct data gives the McKinley County figure as 2,488; this figure makes Patton's statewide total match the stated figure.
  • The canvass is listed in The New Mexico Blue Book 1937-1938.
