Bernallilo Mobile Voting, Climate Change Affecting Spring Runoff & Summer Irrigation

NMiF: Our Land

This week on New Mexico in Focus, it’s a close look at Bernalillo County’s mobile voting unit, which debuted last fall as the first such experiment in the state. NMiF explains the program, its attractiveness to other counties and how voting officials decide where to take it for elections.

On this month’s installment of Our Land, environmental correspondent Laura Paskus looks at how climate change affects spring runoff and summer irrigation here in New Mexico. The interview is a companion piece to the broadcast of the national PBS series “Sinking Cities.”

Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists debate Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller’s new plan to address gun violence. The Line also takes a closer look at the Energy Transition Act that Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law, and also discusses the bills that the governor vetoed.
