We are advocates for a free, fair,
and inclusive democracy in New Mexico
Our current projects for the 2021 Regular Legislative Session:
We are also supporting these election reforms:
We STRONGLY OPPOSE Senate Bill 48 which would take our democracy backwards by repealing many 2019 voting rights laws and adding more barriers to the ballot box.
Update 2/22/21- Senate Bill 48 has been edited heavily with a substitution bill in the Senate Rules Committee that removed most of the barriers we objected to. We agree with most of the substitution bill but we still oppose SB48 because it rolls back full Same Day voter Registration (SDR). Passing SDR in 2019 was an important step forward for our democracy by removing a significant barrier to voting – the outdated 28-day registration deadline. We do not want to go backwards. Tell the Senate Judiciary Committee members that you oppose SB48 unless it brings back SDR.
