New Mexico District 1 of the United States House of Representatives serves the central area of New Mexico, including almost three-fourths of Albuquerque. The current Representative is Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham, who became the district's second Democratic representative in 2013.

History[edit]

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