The 2018 Pre-Primary Nominating Convention will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 in the
Ballroom at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Registration for the Convention will begin at
7:00am, and the Convention will be called to order at 9:00am.
We are required to hold the Pre-Primary Convention by state law (and DPNM Rules). At the
convention, Delegates from across our state will vote for their preferred Democratic candidate for all
statewide and federal offices up for election in 2018. Each candidate receiving 20% or more of the
votes of delegates to the convention will be placed on the primary ballot. We will also consider a
platform at the convention. Adoption of the platform requires 60 percent of a non-secret vote.
