Rep. Yvette Herrell

Representative for New Mexico’s 2nd District


Herrell is the representative for New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. She has served since Jan 3, 2021. Herrell is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Herrell voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol. Following the rejection of several cases before the Supreme Court, one legislator called for violence.
