The County Central Committee is holding an election to place the Democratic party’s judicial nominees for Metro Court Divisions 1 and 16 on November’s ballot. Here’s what you need to know:

- How will you vote? Voters will receive an absentee ballot to cast their votes.
- When will you receive your ballot? Ballots will be sent out at 7:00 am on Thursday, August 25.
- When are ballots due? Ballots must be returned by 11:59 pm on Sunday, August 28.

Crime affects everyone in our community. So, for our upcoming August Unite Nite, we’re taking a deeper look at the topic with two criminal justice experts:
- Justice Briana Zamora will give a presentation about her commission on crime.
- Justin Allen, an organizer with Millions for Prisoners, will discuss the criminal justice reform legislation that he’s working on.
The meeting is on Tuesday, August 23, from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Register to attend today for a better understanding of how New Mexico is tackling crime.
Know where we are,
See where we’re going,
And vote your power in November.
We’ve seen what the radical right GOP is about: They want to limit who can vote, which books we read, what lessons teachers can teach, what private medical decisions can be made between doctors and patients—all while using bigotry and racism to keep their followers stirred up.
We DON’T want any of that happening in New Mexico. Now’s the time to put our power to work for Democratic candidates—by donating to campaigns, volunteering, helping Get Out the Vote, and, above all, marking our ballots for Dems we want to see in office.

Called to the Ranks of the Decent Race
There are two races of men in this world, but only these two—the “race” of the decent man and the “race” of the indecent man. ― Viktor Frankl
The headline read, “BREAKING: Fourth Muslim man killed in ABQ.” This is not us. NO community should live in fear of being targeted and killed. Our Muslim friends and neighbors should not live with that fear. We are better than this. We the People in the city of Albuquerque, in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, USA, are part of the decent race, and indecency has no place among us.
Pro-Choice Governor and Mayor
New Mexico is strongly pro-choice. Yes, even its traditional Hispanic, strongly Roman Catholic voters have demonstrated strength in supporting the right of a woman to make personal reproductive health choices in conjunction with a doctor.
In that vein, a recent New Yorker podcast interview with New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham at https://www.newyorker.com/podcast is worth a listen. The governor there answers why she cannot and will not “compromise” in order to win votes that otherwise could go to her November GOP opponent, whose official position is for banning abortion “only” after 15 weeks and who has told a notorious right-wing minister that he favors a full ban.
