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 Sandoval 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, 34 SCC members and 183 CCC members.
Our CCC meeting will be held on March 20, 2021. Our ward and precinct elections will occur on March 13.
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, precinct, and CCC meetings will be virtual and the associated elections will be held via absentee balloting.
You will receive more information soon from both the County Party and your Ward Chair regarding the elections to occur at your precinct and ward before the CCC meeting.
