SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Results of New Mexico's primary election are about to become final.
    
The state Canvassing Board is scheduled to meet Tuesday in the Capitol to certify official returns from the June 3 primary election.
    
The board is made up of Gov. Susana Martinez, Secretary of State Dianna Duran and the chief justice of the state Supreme Court, Barbara Vigil.
    
By law, only Democrats and Republicans can vote in New Mexico's primary election.
    
According to unofficial returns, about 201,000 New Mexicans cast ballots in the election. That represents about 20 percent of the registered Democratic and GOP voters in the state.
    
About 28 percent of eligible Democrats and Republicans voted four years ago, when New Mexicans last decided primary contests in a gubernatorial election year.
