CALL to the DPNM 2024 State Pre-Primary Nominating Convention

 January 26, 2024

Ms. Jessica Velasquez, the Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM), has issued the official CALL to the DPNM 2024 State Pre-Primary Nominating Convention, to be held Saturday, March 9th, 2024. The purpose of the State Pre-Primary Convention is to accomplish the following:

  1. Nominate Democratic candidates whose names will appear on the NM Primary ballot in June.
  2. Vote on whether to adopt the new DPNM Platform presented by the State Platform Committee.
  3. Deliberate, debate, and vote on any DPNM Resolutions presented at the convention.

CALL to the DOÑA ANA COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY WARD ELECTIONS and 2024 PRE-PRIMARY CONVENTION

Pursuant to the DPNM Chair’s official CALL for the DPNM State Pre-Primary Convention, I am now issuing the official CALL to the Doña Ana County Democratic Party 2024 Pre-Primary Convention and to the Ward Elections of Convention Delegates.

  • The purpose of the County Pre-Primary Convention is to certify the election of 73 state-convention delegates who will represent Doña Ana County and vote accordingly at the March 9th State Pre-Primary Convention.
  • Other business that may be conducted at the county convention includes: adoption of county-party resolutions, adoption or amendment of supplemental county-party rules, and conducting other business pertaining to the county party.

Because the Doña Ana County Democratic Party conducts “pass through” (aka “certifying”) pre-primary conventions, the convention electors will certify the ward-elected delegates to be the county’s state-convention delegates.
