Call for 2020 Pre-Primary Elections

All Santa Fe County Democrats are invited to participate in the Ward elections for Pre-Primary delegates to the State Pre-Primary Convention. These elections will take place between February 1st and February 8th on the dates and locations listed below.

The Pre-Primary delegates that we elect will vote at the State Pre-Primary Convention—to be held March 7th at Buffalo Thunder—for their preferred Democratic candidates for all statewide and federal offices up for election in 2020. Each candidate receiving 20% or more of the votes of convention delegates will be placed on the primary ballot.

In order to vote or become a delegate, a person shall have been a registered Democrat for at least thirty days prior to these meetings; and shall physically reside in the political subdivision in which he/she wishes to vote or be elected as a Pre-Primary delegate. If you do not know your precinct, you can look up your voter file here.

Please run for delegate only if you can attend the DPNM Pre-Primary Convention on March 7th. State Central Committee (SCC) members are automatically Pre-Primary delegates and should not run for a delegate position in these elections, although they may participate as voters.

We welcome your participation in this essential work of grassroots democracy.
