New Mexico: plan to end partisan judicial elections for top courts clears key Senate committee

The plan to end partisan judicial elections for New Mexico’s top courts (discussed here) cleared the Senate Rules Committee yesterday on a 10-1 vote.

SJR 10 as amended would amend the state constitution’s requirement that races for the New Mexico’s top courts (Supreme, Court of Appeals, District, and Metropolitan) be partisan and replace with the word nonpartisan.

SJR 10 now goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
