The 1916 United States presidential election in New Mexico took place on November 7, 1916. 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 Woodrow Wilson, who secured a tumultuous reelection against Supreme Court Justice Charles Evans Hughes, and Socialist Party icon Allan L. Benson.[1] Wilson's reluctance to bid armed forces in World War I improved his image for this election, as a "peace candidate".[2]
