Pursuant to the official Call for the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Spring 2021 State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, this notice serves as the call to the Democratic Party of Doña Ana County Central Committee meeting and associated Precinct and Ward Meetings.
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. At the 2021 meeting we will be electing county party officers, 42 SCC members, and 579 CCC members.
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.
