4. A new election law that could have shifted the election cycles for district attorneys is now shut down by the New Mexico Supreme Court. Initially, the law sought to move all DA elections to 2022 when the governor gets elected. That would have given some DA’s a couple of extra years in office. Eight DA’s sued to block the change and won saying state law only allows for four-year terms. They also removed provisions to change election years for district attorneys and magistrate court judges.
