For guidance and advice on contacting your legislators, see COABE's Legislative Center

NM State Legislature

The best way to contact your NM state legislators is by sending regular mail.

If you feel that your USPS mail might not reach your legislator in time to make a difference, you can, in addition to sending regular mail, fax your state legislator at 505-986-4610. Make sure that you clearly identify the recipient of your fax.

If you're not sure who your state legislators are or you don't know their addresses or phone numbers, you can find out here:
