New Mexico's 1st congressional district of the United States House of Representatives serves the central area of New Mexico, including most of Bernalillo County, all of Torrance County, and parts of Sandoval, Santa Fe and Valencia counties. It includes almost three-fourths of Albuquerque. The district has a notable Native American presence, encompassing several pueblos including the Pueblo of Laguna and Sandia Pueblo outside Albuquerque.[4] The seat is currently occupied by Democrat Deb Haaland, who was first elected in 2018. She succeeded Michelle Lujan Grisham, who retired after becoming Governor of New Mexico.

History

Until the 1968 elections, New Mexico's representatives were all elected at-large statewide. Starting in 1969, however, they were elected by districts. (See New Mexico's At-large congressional district.)
