LWVLA NEWS RELEASE
Although many voters ignore the primary election, your vote is critical in that it helps determine which of the candidates will compete on the general election ballot in November. Too few voters, however, are informed about the candidates’ beliefs, and how they will represent your values and allocate your money.
Informing voters about candidates is the purpose of the League of Women Voters Voter Guide. To these ends the LWV sends a questionnaire to all candidates and publishes their responses in the Vote411 Voter Guide https://www.vote411.org. Here in Los Alamos, our League contacts every candidate running for local office. The responses returned on time to the LWV-LA are reported in this week’s print edition of the Lots Alamos Daily Post. All responses received are reported online at vote411.org.
Your vote is your voice. Your vote reflects your values. Your vote locally helps guide who in the County will direct County’s resources and services. The Voter Guide will help you be an informed voter.
NOTE: Decline-to-state (DTS) voters in New Mexico are registered voters who have chosen not to affiliate with a major political party. Currently, the only major parties in New Mexico are the Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian (D, R, L) Parties. This year, for the first time, NM voters registered as DTS or with a minor party, can change their registration to D, R, or L at the polls or the County Clerk’s office and then vote on the same day during the primary voting period. This is called Same Day Registration or SDR. Voters who then wish to revert back to being DTS or registered with a minor party can update their registration online at NMVOTE.ORG after they’ve voted in the Primary Election.
Major party voters may update name, address, or other contact info during SDR. However, they may not use Same Day Registration to switch parties during the Primary Election.
Residents who are not registered but are qualified to vote may register and vote during the election period.
