Summary

Constitutional Amendment No. 1 proposes to amend Article 12, Section 15 of the Constitution of New Mexico to increase the size of school boards in school districts with a population greater than 200,000 from seven to nine members. The amendment would also require that elections in school districts with a population greater than 200,000 be conducted by mail-in ballot, or as otherwise provided by law. The only school district that this amendment affects at the present time is the Albuquerque Public School District, but as New Mexico's population increases, other school districts may eventually exceed 200,000. The second-largest school district in New Mexico at the present time is the Las Cruces Public School District, which had a population of 120,950, according to the 2000 census.
