BREAKING: Ranked Choice Voting Appeal Denied!

RANKED CHOICE VOTING HERE WE COME!

It's critical that we all know how to participate in this new system - and it's a great opportunity for us all to engage our family, friends, and community in a conversation about building political power and why participating in the electoral process matters -- especially when democratic tools like Ranked Choice Voting make it easier for more diverse candidates to run meaningful campaigns, for us to have winners that represent larger majorities, and for us to push the political envelope to include our communities' priorities.

WE ARE PARTNERING WITH FAIRVOTE NM TO RUN A VOTER ENGAGEMENT CAMPAIGN - TARGETING FOLKS WHO NORMALLY HAVE BEEN DISENFRANCHISED AND MARGINALIZED FROM THE ELECTORAL PROCESS

Over the next 8 weeks, we'll be training 10 organizers from our Youth Allies, Poder Familiar, and Action Network to do presentations in schools, at events, with businesses and organizations, and to conduct direct outreach to voters. Our outreach will include helping folks who aren't yet registered to vote, get registered. 

We are co-hosting a training series for ANYONE interested in learning how to engage others in the campaign and teach about the new voting system.

Space limited to 20 participants per session. First come first serve. To RSVP please send an email to Maria Perez at mperez@fairvote.org and indicate which session you want to participate in at mperez@fairvote.org or call 505 550 0647.

  • Thursday Jan. 11 @ 12-1, 2-4, & 5-7 (at Chainbreaker- 1515 5th Ave)
  • Friday Jan. 12 @ 10-12, 1-3, & 3-5 (at La Farge Library- 1730 LLano St)
  • Saturday Jan. 13 @ 10-12, 1-3, & 4-6 (at EarthCare- Corner of Jaguar and Country Club) -
