New Mexico Overview
Redistricting Process: The state legislature of New Mexico was given control of legislative redistricting in 1976. Prior to 1976, each county in the state was allocated a set number of legislative seats by state law, and apportionment was carried out only within counties. In 2001, a joint interim redistricting committee drafted redistricting legislation, which was then considered by both houses. Congressional and legislative redistricting plans adopted by the legislature are subject to veto by the governor.
Governor: Republican Susana Martinez
