Democratic Party of Los Alamos County
To all Los Alamos County Democrats,
Pursuant to the official Call for the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Spring 2023 State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, this is the official Call for the Democratic Party of Los Alamos County 2023 Ward and County Central Committee Meetings.
We are required by DPNM Rules to hold Ward Meetings and 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 at the state level.
Since 2020, we have found that remote meetings and absentee voting greatly increase participation in our democratic process. In 2023, Los Alamos Democrats will maintain our commitments to accessibility, inclusivity, and equity by continuing to hold our internal elections through remote meetings and absentee balloting pursuant to DPNM Rules, with phone-in options for all registration and voting processes.
This year, Los Alamos will elect county party officers, 39 CCC members, and 7 SCC members. All Democrats registered in Los Alamos County as of January 19, 2023 are eligible and encouraged to participate. Ward meeting registration and declaration of candidacy to be part of ward leadership will be open between February 3 and February 19, 2023.
Our Ward meetings will be held on February 19, 2023 via Zoom, with absentee voting between February 21 and February 25. Our County Central Committee Meeting will be held on March 5, 2023 via Zoom, with absentee voting between March 25 and March 28, 2023.
More information regarding the Ward meetings and county elections, including a full timeline, registration links, and Zoom meeting links, is available at losalamosdemocrats.org/2023wardmeetings. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call election administrator, Dave Schiferl, at 505-470-8916 for help with registration; please leave a message, and calls will be returned promptly.
