The second National Popular Vote Public Forum with New Mexico Senator Mimi Stewart, just three days before the 2019 legislative session opens, will provide the most recent National Popular Vote updates, include a legislative focus, and build on the first (“heads-up”) event, though no previous participation is needed.
The National Popular Vote is an integral part of the Democratic Party of Santa Fe County’s official platform and will guarantee the U.S. presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
To familiarize yourself with the National Popular Vote before or after the January 12 event, please visit the National Popular Vote-New Mexico website: www.nationalpopularvotenm.org
The free forum is hosted by the League of Women Voters of Santa Fe County and open to the general public. Seating will be limited, so plan to arrive early.

Please join Senator Daniel Ivey-Soto, Vice Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Cliff Rees, Director of Policy and Legislative Liaison for Lt. Governor Howie C.

Wednesday, January 16, 6-7:30 pm at 1420 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe.
