New Mexico adopted fair maps this redistricting cycle. In early 2021, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, a fair maps champion, signed a bill establishing an advisory redistricting commission to recommend new state legislative and congressional lines. After the 2020 Census data was released and the advisory commission made its recommendations, the New Mexico legislature passed and Gov. Lujan Grisham signed into law the new congressional and state legislative maps. Gov. Lujan Grisham’s reelection is a 2022 NDRC target.

How Our Fight Continues
Thanks to the grassroots movement for fair maps, we have maps in place that are far more fair than they would have been if Republicans had been allowed to gerrymander unchecked this past redistricting cycle. But if the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that our fight to protect free and fair elections is far from over. Redistricting has always been part of the larger fight to protect our democracy. The stakes are far too high to stand by the sidelines.
