The purpose of this thesis is to examine the origin, enactment, and operation of the Direct Primary Code of New Mexico. What has been the effect of greater public participation in the selection of candidates? Has there been a change in the quality of individuals who now seek public office? Has the legislation improved under the law? What are the interests which are for or against the measure? These inquiries will be pursued in the pages that follow.
