 The municipalities have well-defined boundaries, see this map: https://cuentame.inegi.org.mx/mapas/pdf/entidades/div_municipal/chihmpios.pdf
As I mentioned earlier, the time change in Chihuahua is causing confusion due to the way that the decree was written. Literally, the decree puts Ojinaga in UTC-6 and Juárez in UTC-7 during the DST period, rather than outside that period as intended. A senator warned about the mistake in the text, but the legislature rushed to pass it without a correction. The senator then asked the president to return it for a correction, but it was published as originally written. Now the senator is introducing a bill to make the correction, while other legislators exchange accusations. In Juárez, the authorities plan to change the time on November 30 anyway.https://nortedigital.mx/diputados-se-equivocan-juarez-quedaria-desfasada-de-ep-permanentemente-madero/https://www.elheraldodechihuahua.com.mx/local/juarez/gustavo-madero-pide-que-no-haya-cambio-de-horario-en-ciudad-juarez-9258114.html

Does anyone know the geographical boundary between America/Ciudad_Juarez and America/Ojinaga? Is there some geographical feature like a river that demarcates the boundary between them? The law didn’t say anything about that; it just lists municipalities. Do these municipalities abut each other so we can use those boundaries?

Unfortunately, some of the specifically listed municipalities are actually quite distant from one another.
Presuming this change might soon happen, I had surmised the following in https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2022-October/032144.html"Assuming an extension of the Texas' time zone boundary between Hudspeth and Presidio Counties, that would put such a dividing line near Lomas de Arena in Chihuahua."
I'd imagine that's at least close enough to the intent here to suffice until it more clearly emerges what folks are actually observing locally.
