2022 Legislative Dinner

The Democratic Party of New Mexico presents the Legislative Dinner of the 55th New Mexico Legislature.

Join the Democratic Party of New Mexico and Democratic leaders at our annual Legislative Dinner for an evening of celebration.

Let’s Get Democrats on the Ballot!

Democrats are working hard to get their names on the ballot by February 1st, and they need your help! The best way you can help is by printing off petitions and asking your friends, family members, and neighbors to sign! Information on Democratic petitions are below, as well as information on how to return petitions. A few key notes when collecting signatures: 

  • Make sure the signer is a registered Democrat in the area covered by the office;
  • Make sure the signer writes as legibly as possible;
  • For contested races, the signer can only sign for one candidate for the office being sought. For example, if you sign for one State Auditor candidate, do not sign for the other one.
