Footnotes

1 Election law in New Mexico prior to 1960 dictated that if a seat was vacated by resignation or death, the term would expire naturally without a special election. This law was changed due to the close proximity of Representatives' Antonio M. Fernández and John J. Dempsey deaths on respectively November 7, 1956 and March 11, 1958, leaving New Mexico with only one U.S. Representative for an extended length of time.
2 Néstor Montoya died January 13, 1923.
3 Antonio M. Fernández died November 7, 1956, just hours after being re-elected to an 8th term.
4 John J. Dempsey died March 11, 1958.
5 Steven Schiff died March 25, 1998.
