The 1936 United States presidential election in New Mexico took place on November 3, 1936. 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 incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a 26 point sweep-out landslide against Kansas Governor Alf Landon. Union Party candidate William Lemke made a small splash in New Mexico and elsewhere in the United States, in one of the Union Party's best election years of the 1930s.[1]
