Politics

What does the upcoming primary election look like? How does New Mexico’s closed primary system work? Will it impact New Mexico’s local elections this year? What influence will money have the upcoming election? Do politicians ever tell the truth?  Will healthcare policy and the Affordable Care Act have any impact in 2016? What should voters think before voting this year? UNM political experts tackle these and other breaking issues throughout this election season.

Faculty and staff researchers at the University of New Mexico can help sort out the confusion for almost any audience.
