ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — For the first time since 1998, New Mexico is holding a special election to fill a vacant congressional seat. The 1st Congressional District seat was held by Deb Haaland, who resigned in March after being confirmed as U.S. interior secretary.
Whoever wins the four-way replace to succeed Haaland on July 1 would serve out the remainder of her two-year term that ends in January 2023. The seat will also be on the general election ballot in November 2022.
Below you will find candidate profiles, questionnaires, key election dates and voter resources for the upcoming special election.
