Democratic Party of Doña Ana county

2020 Here We Come!

We have a lot of work to do this year. From conventions, organizing, fundraising, and voting for our candidates.

Dear Democrats of Doña Ana County:

Please join us in the start of the 2020 election process by participating in the Pre-primary Precinct Meetings this month in each District. What are these meetings all about?

Why? – The Pre-Primary District/Precinct meetings are part of the process for selecting the candidates who will be on the Democratic primary ballot in June. This applies to US Congressional Representative and US Senator, State Supreme Court Justices and Judges on the Court of Appeals.

 When? – There will be meetings of ALL precincts organized by district on the nights of January 29 and January 30.

What? – Three elections will be held at each district/precinct meeting:

  1. From among the voters in each precinct, delegates will be elected to the County Pre-primary Convention.
  2. From among the delegates elected in each precinct, a person will be elected to be a member of the County Credentials and Rules Committee (CCRC)
  3. From among the members of the CCRC, a person will be elected to be the district representative to the CCRC 

Where? The locations for each meeting are given in the notice in the adjacent panel. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Voters must be in line by 6:00 p.m. to be sure to be able to participate in the precinct meeting elections.
