Welcome to the New Mexico Legislature's 2021 Redistricting Website. You'll find a variety of information on this page related to the task of redrawing state, legislative and congressional district boundaries, as well links to past redistricting cycles.
The Legislature met in special session from December 6 through December 17, 2021 to consider, among other issues, how to redraw the state's election districts. The special session followed a series of public meetings held by the independent Citizen Redistricting Committee (CRC) (established by the Redistricting Act, during which public comment was solicited from around the state and redistricting plans were developed and adopted by the committee for the state's legislative, congressional and public education commission districts. Twelve plans were submitted to the legislature for its consideration. Check the CRC webpage https://www.nmredistricting.org/ for its full report, proposed maps and recordings and minutes of the meetings.
The Legislature established new election districts for the state's congressional, legislative and public education commission districts. The new districts for congress and the state house of representatives are effective for the 2022 election. The districts for the state senate will take effect for the 2024 election, while five of the public education commission districts are effective for the 2022 election with the other five effective for the 2024 election. The enabling legislation for each can be found as follows: Congress; Senate; House; Public Education Commission
Please note that officers elected from the districts established following the 2010 redistricting cycle continue to represent those districts and serve until their terms end following the next general election for their respective office. Therefore, until there is an election from a new district (in 2022 or 2024, depending on the office), the "old" district continues to exist.
