Congratulations to our newly elected DPSFC officers and SCC delegates!

We had a fantastic turnout for our CCC election and we’re proud to announce the new DPSFC officers: Chair, Bernadette Vadurro; First Vice Chair, David Thompson; and Second Vice Chair, Marti Burt.

Congratulations also to the 55 elected SCC members from CD3 and one SCC member from CD1.  The list of the 2021 SCC delegates for Santa Fe County is available at this link: 2021 DPSFC SCC Delegates

Thank you to everyone who ran for a county, ward, or SCC position, as well as to our outgoing officers – Estelle, Roger, and Sara — who have led our party as officers for over two years and as ward leaders for two years previously. We’re so proud to see such enthusiasm from Santa Fe Democrats, and we look forward to continuing to do the same great work under our new leadership.

Call to the 2021 CCC Meeting and Ward Elections

Pursuant to the official Call for the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Spring 2021 State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, I am writing to provide you with the Call to the Democratic Party of Santa Fe County Central Committee meeting.

We are required by DPNM Rules to hold a County Central Committee (CCC) meeting in odd-numbered years for the purposes of electing county party officers and DPNM SCC members to represent our county. This year, we will be electing county party officers, 58 SCC members and 602 CCC members, and voting on changes/amendments to our rules.

Our CCC meeting will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11 AM. Our ward elections will occur between February 13 and February 21, 2021. [Scroll down for ward meeting schedule.]

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the public health orders in effect in our state, we will be unable to conduct these meetings via in-person gatherings as we did in previous years.

As a result, in conjunction with the DPNM Rules allowing for meetings to be held virtually and for voting pursuant to those meetings to be held via absentee balloting, our ward and CCC meetings will be virtual and the associated elections will be held via absentee balloting.

In order to confirm credentials and resolve any issues prior to ward meetings, you must register in advance. Please click here to register for your ward meeting. The meeting schedule is provided below.  YOU MUST BE REGISTERED BY 9 AM TWO DAYS BEFORE YOUR MEETING DATE. For example, if your meeting is scheduled for any time on February 13th, you must be registered by 9 AM on February 11th.

If you do not know your precinct, you can look up your voter file here. The link to your ward meeting will be provided after registration.

BECOME A LEADER IN YOUR COUNTY PARTY!
As we saw in 2020, Democratic commitment + activism = CHANGE!
We’re looking for people who are passionate about Democratic values to run for ward leaders and County Central Committee (CCC), which is the governing body of the county Democratic Party. You can learn more about these roles in the Declaration of Candidacy Form.

If you would like to run for ward officer and/or CCC member, please fill out this Declaration of Candidacy and submit it — in addition to your registration form — by 9 AM two days before your ward meeting.

Sincerely,

Estelle Berger
Chair, Democratic Party of Santa Fe County
