Voter Outreach

Low turnout among Democrats led to Yvette Herrell’s election. Let’s not let that happen again. We need to motivate and engage the Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who don’t always vote. Volunteer with the coordinated campaign to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Contact Rick Lass, 505-920-0540, rick@nmdemocrats.org.

Volunteer with Gabe Vasquez’s campaign. Contact Frances Gonzales, 575-956-8942, frances@nmdemocrats.org

Can you volunteer for Elephant Days or the County Fair?

The Sierra County Fair runs from Wed. Oct. 5 through Sun. Oct. 9. Our booths there have typically been indoors.

Elephant Days is an all-day outdoor event Sat. Oct. 15 and Sun. Oct. 16.

We would need volunteers to take shifts staffing our table(s). Voter registrars appreciated but not required.

If we have enough volunteers to make our presence at both or either of these events feasible, we’ll work out the details. Please respond to sierracountydems@gmail.com if interested in either and say what days or hours you’d be available. You may list options, as in “I could do the morning of Oct. x or the afternoon of Oct. y, but not both” or “I’m flexible for any morning of the fair,” etc.

Thank you!
