  1. ^ a b c New Mexico law prior to 1960 dictated that if a seat was vacated, the term would expire naturally without a special election. The law was changed due to the close proximity of Antonio M. Fernández and John J. Dempsey's deaths on November 7, 1956 and March 11, 1958 (respectively), leaving New Mexico with only one U.S. Representative for an extended time.
