The 1920 United States presidential election in New Mexico took place on November 2, 1920. All 48 States were part of the United States presidential election. New Mexico voters chose three electors to represent them in the Electoral College, which voted for President and Vice President.

New Mexico was won by Ohio Senator Warren G. Harding, in a strong 10 point lead against Ohio Governor James M. Cox.[1] While the Farmer-Labor Party was the leading third-party in New Mexico, the election was spearheaded by both parties attacking Eugene V. Debs of the Socialist Party, and a call for a return to political normalcy in the wake of World War I.[2]
