The attorneys at Kennedy, Hernandez & Associates have vast experience with regard to election law and redistricting in New Mexico, including trying redistricting cases for the census.
Congressional districts are drawn based on data from the U.S. census, and are redrawn every 10 years. The state legislature draws the legislative district boundaries, but these are subject to veto by the governor. There are many federal guidelines that legislators must follow to draw district maps, but it can get tricky to prove whether the guidelines have been enforced properly.
Because of the firm’s work with government officials at all levels of the state legislature and state government, the attorneys at Kennedy, Hernandez & Associates have an in-depth understanding of the political and legal issues regarding redistricting and election law. The firm also has experience handling challenges to election results when fair election procedures were not followed.
