Project Summary

The goal of the task force was to develop recommendations to present to the N.M. Legislature on redistricting rules and processes. New Mexico First was and is committed to cross-partisan dialogue, consensus-building, and aligned action on policy issues that impact the state. Therefore, the Redistricting Task Force included voters, researchers, lawmakers, tribal members, and advocates who are knowledgeable about redistricting or voter rights. The group included people from different political parties and is racially, ethnically, and geographically diverse, including members from the sovereign Pueblos and Tribes across New Mexico.
