The 1976 United States presidential election in New Mexico took place on November 2, 1976. All 50 states and The District of Columbia, were part of the 1976 United States presidential election. New Mexico voters chose four electors to represent them in the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Jimmy Carter won the electoral college with 297 votes, and was elected President.

A reliable bellwether state in Presidential elections, this was the first election since gaining statehood that New Mexico did not back the winning Presidential candidate. This has only happened in one other election since (2000).
