2016 Election

In keeping with a commitment to the community and the media, the University of New Mexico provides its “2016 Election Experts” website accessible throughout election season. The 2016 election cycle is unique: a strengthening U.S. economy, an increasingly chaotic world political situation, and changing rules for political contributions that allow individuals or groups to spend money virtually anonymously on candidates, has framed a particularly confusing election year.

Media members interested in interviewing UNM’s election experts may contact University Communication and Marketing Representative Aaron Hilf,, (505) 277.5920 or Karen Wentworth,, (505) 277.5627.
