DONA ANA COUNTY, N.M. -- Democratic candidates for New Mexico State Senate Race District 31 are busy doing last minute campaigning before election day Tuesday.
The candidates are former Sunland Park Mayor Jesus Ruben Segura and State Representative Joseph Cervantes.
"Success from this race is going to come from having a proven record working successfully in Santa Fe and getting important legislature passed," said Joseph Cervantes.
Segura said, like Cervantes, he has a proven record of working for the community.
"I've already created a name in regards to people knowing that I've been an advocate for the interest of the community and the people that I represent," said Jesus Ruben Segura. "I will be there for them."
District 31 encompasses the Las Alturas community in Las Cruces, the City of Anthony, Berino, two-thirds of Chaparral, La Union, Santa Teresa, Sunland Park, and White Sands.
Cervantes said it's those outlying communities he hopes to help, and that's what part of his campaign is based on. He said he has already been working in the New Mexico House of Representatives to improve the smaller communities in Dona Ana County.
"I've been getting important resources into our communities, into our colonias and throughout the valley and bringing people together to get results," Cervantes said.
Segura said he has proven to the community when he was mayor Sunland Park that he is willing to work for the people.
"I like to be out with community, listening to them," Segura said. "I want to be a voice for them."
Elections are Tuesday. Polls are open from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.
