100 Volunteers Contacted 38,000+ Voters About Requesting an Absentee Ballot Online
The New Mexico for All field team yesterday held a virtual day of action focused on encouraging voters to request their absentee ballot through the New Mexico Secretary of State’s online portal.
Over 100 volunteers completed 114 shifts as part of the day of action, working from 9:00am to 8:00pm. The team made 6,143 calls and sent 32,554 texts to voters around New Mexico. Altogether more than 38,000 voters were contacted and able to request the ballots.
“We’re seeing a lot of enthusiasm from Democrats across New Mexico, and we want to make sure that everyone can cast their ballot safely and securely,” said New Mexico for All Field Director Nikki Otake. “This election is an opportunity for us to take the next step toward creating a New Mexico for all, and to do that we need to make sure that all New Mexicans can make their voices heard. Thanks to the hard work of organizers, fellows, and volunteers, we’re going to see an even bigger blue wave in 2020.”
