Doña Ana Soil & Water Conservation District Election – Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5

Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5 there is an important election for Doña Ana Soil & Water Conservation District Election. Last year the Democratic Party of Doña Ana County joined efforts to defeat a tax increase that would have given additional funding to the Doña Ana Soil & Water Conservation District, who sought funds for the District’s anti-environmental, anti- public lands, and anti-wildlife agenda.

There will be three polling locations on Tuesday, May 5. Polls are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm:

1.Anthony Community Center, 865 South Anthony Drive, Anthony, NM 88021
2.Doña Ana County Government Center, 845 N Motel Blvd, Las Cruces, NM 88007
3.Radium Springs Community Center, 12060 LB Lindbeck Road, Las Cruces, NM 88007

Three seats on the District’s board are up for election on May 5. All three seats are contested. While the Democratic Party of Doña Ana County has made no endorsements in next Tuesday’s non-partisan contests, we urge Democrats to vote in this and every election. Voter turnout in the District’s elections is usually very low, so every vote matters.
