Voter Registration Training
May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDT
Voter registration remains one of the most important forms of voter outreach for the Democratic Party. The party relies on votes from Santa Fe County to win congressional and statewide races, and getting new people registered and voting is a key part of that. In New Mexico, you must be qualified as a Voter Registration Agent (VRA) in order to register voters.
Our first voter registration training of this year is at 6pm on Tuesday, May 16, at The Center for Progress and Justice (our HQ), 1420 Cerrillos Rd., in the Auditorium. The trainings are done by staff from the County Clerk’s Elections Office – we thank County Clerk Katherine Clark and her staff for making themselves available during evening hours and at our facility.
Even if you’ve previously been qualified as a VRA, this training may be useful – as a refresher and because recent legislation has made some changes in voter registration procedures in NM. You can also refresh your supplies of voter registration forms if necessary.
If you haven’t been a VRA before, do bring NM ID (i.e. a drivers’ license) – your paperwork needs to be notarized (there at the meeting), so you need ID. Those who have been a VRA before will be able to skip that step.
We need participants in the training to sign up in advance (the clerk needs to confirm in advance your own voter registration and whether you’ve been a VRA before). Click here to sign up
We anticipate doing these once a month, depending on the response. If you can’t attend this session but are interested, you can note that on the form.
