ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — It's primary election day in New Mexico.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mountain time.

Republicans and Democrats will make decisions on local, legislative and statewide races.

GOP voters have five candidates to choose from in the governor's race. The winner will face Lieutenant Gov. Diane Denish, who is on the Democratic ballot unopposed.

Only two primaries are contested for U.S. House of Representatives.

In southern New Mexico's 2nd District, former Rep. Steve Pearce of Hobbs faces Roswell farmer Cliff Pirtle in the GOP primary.

In northern New Mexico's 3rd District, Farmington petroleum engineer Tom Mullins and Santa Fe veteran Adam Kokesh are vying for the Republican nod.

All 70 seats in the state House of Representatives are up for election this year, but 28 incumbents are running unopposed.
