The statewide nonprofit organization New Mexico First is inviting nominations and self-nominations for a Redistricting Task Force. The goal of the task force is to develop recommendations to present to the N.M. Legislature on redistricting rules and processes. A task force can increase cross-partisan trust in the redistricting process, reduce the contentiousness that has historically resulted in timely and costly lawsuits, and increase public confidence in the electoral process and civic institutions...The Redistricting Task Force will meet remotely every two weeks beginning September 21, 2020, from 3-5 pm, and aims to complete discussion, deliberation, and drafting of recommendations by late November. Please go their website by September 5, 2020, to self-nominate or nominate someone you know!
