Democratic Party of Los Alamos
Pursuant to the official Call for the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Spring 2021 State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, I am writing to provide you with the call to the Los Alamos County Ward meetings and County Central Committee meeting.
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. This year, we will be electing county party officers, 7 SCC members and 37 CCC members. All Democrats registered in Los Alamos County as of January 27, 2021 are eligible and encouraged to participate. Ward meeting and convention registration will be between Jan. 30 and Feb. 12, 2021.
Our ward meetings will be held on Feb. 27, with elections taking place between Feb. 24 and Feb. 26. Our CCC meeting will be held on March 27 with elections taking place between March 23 and March 25. 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 as we did in previous years.
As a result, in conjunction with the DPNM Rules allowing for meetings to be held virtually and for voting pursuant to those meetings to be held via absentee balloting, our ward and CCC meetings will be virtual and the associated elections will be held via absentee balloting.
More information regarding the elections to occur at your ward before the CCC meeting is available at losalamosdemocrats.org/2021convention.
