DOÑA ANA COUNTY COMMISSION DISTRICTS RENUMBERED

DOÑA ANA COUNTY COMMISSION DISTRICTS RENUMBERED

            Four of the five Doña Ana County districts represented by the Board of County Commissioners were recently affected by a legislatively-mandated, one-time realignment following the passage of House Bill 407. As a result, constituents may see a new district number associated with the commissioner representing that district, but the alignment did not change any district boundaries from which candidates are elected.
            The newly assigned districts are:
 

FORMER DISTRICT NUMBER NEW DISTRICT NUMBER
Dist. 1, Lynn Ellins Dist. 1, Ramon Gonzalez
Dist. 2, Ramon Gonzalez Dist. 2, Lynn Ellins
Dist. 3, Shannon Reynolds Dist. 3, Isabella Solis
Dist. 4, Isabella Solis Dist. 4, Shannon Reynolds

            Dist. 5, represented by Commissioner Manuel Sanchez, was not affected in the realignment.
            The bill aligned all odd- and even-numbered districts with the corresponding ballot on which those offices are elected. All odd-numbered districts will now appear on the presidential election ballot and all even-numbered districts will appear on the gubernatorial election ballot.
            The public process took place on July 22 in Santa Fe under the supervision of New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver. Some elected office terms were extended as a result of the realignment, but none of those offices affected were in Doña Ana County.
            The updated district numbers take effect immediately.
