Dear Democratic Party of Rio Arriba County:
Pursuant to the official call for the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) Spring 2021 State Central Committee (SCC) meeting, and in accordance with Article III, Section 4.1 and Article IV, Sections 1-2, DPNM rules, I am writing to provide you the official call to our Democratic Party of Rio Arriba 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, 8 SCC members and CCC members from each precinct based on the average number of Democrat votes cast for President and Governor in the last two general elections.
The Democratic Party of Rio Arriba County will hold our CCC meeting/elections on Saturday, March 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our ward and precinct elections will occur separately and prior to the CCC meeting on March 13, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for all three wards.
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 have done in previous years.
As a result, and in accordance with Article 1, Section 7.2, DPNM Rules, allowing for meetings to be held via absentee balloting, all ward, precinct and CCC meetings will be virtual and the associated elections will be held via absentee balloting.
You will receive more information soon regarding the elections to occur at your precinct and ward before the CCC meeting. Please contact me with any questions at 505-929-2868.
