Post Election Wrap-Up
Post Election Wrap-Up
Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020
9:30 am—12:15 pm
Here’s an ideal opportunity to interact with elected NM Senators and Representatives through a group discussion on the 2020 election season. At the same time, you can meet people in your neighborhood who share your political views, learn how to connect with fellow Dems nearby, and join exclusive mailing lists to stay informed about local Democratic Party activities.
Strengthening the relationship between communities and government is where and how action begins. So please accept this unique invitation and carve out a bit of time to be an informed voter and advocate.
A Job Well Done
Our state and county are to be congratulated on how the election process unfolded in our communities. According to the NM Secretary of State’s office, 912,565 votes were cast statewide – with all precincts reporting and results ready by 1:00 am November 4. That’s a great accomplishment for a state whose money and resources are limited in comparison with others across the USA.
Kudos to Linda Stover and her team of workers in the Bernalillo County Clerk’s office! And many thanks to Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and all her staff. Visit the SOS website to check up-to-date (though still unofficial) election results.
Help Project Connect Help Our Students in Need
With classrooms shuttered due to COVID, students in our community must rely on electronic devices and internet access to continue learning. Schools have done their best to provide both, but inequities of wealth and the digital divide raise barriers – especially for at-risk and homeless youth.
Project Connect is helping by providing students and their families with the needed technology and internet access through the remainder of the school year.

Focus On Outcomes
Leading up to the election, DPBC was proud to promote strong Dem candidates up and down the ballot. Now that the numbers are in, we are glad to say that a great majority of the promising people we supported won their races. And the few that didn’t nonetheless put up a great fight.

Democratic vision, Democratic values
We stand with Democrats across New Mexico in our belief that every person matters. We believe all citizens should have an equal voice in how we as a people are governed, without undue influence by rich and powerful special interests.
We work for the 99%, and affirm the ties that bind us together as one human family.
These beliefs and many more important principles are presented in the Platform of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, which we fully support.
Affordable, high-quality pre-K through college education is a basic right.
Regardless of their circumstances, everyone in New Mexico and the U.S. should have access to comprehensive, affordable, high-quality health care.
Services must include comprehensive behavioral health services, reproductive care, access to birth control, quality prenatal and postpartum care, and abortion care.
We believe that comprehensive reform is needed to provide an immigration system that is humane and non-discriminatory.
Families must be kept together.
We recognize that unions contribute to building a stronger middle class, and support their critical role in fighting for living wages, fair work rules and hiring practices, and safe working conditions.
Democrats pledge to fulfill, honor, and strengthen to the highest extent possible the United States’ fundamental trust responsibility to Indigenous Peoples, as provided in the Constitution, treaties, and case law.
Our country has a sacred, moral responsibility to honor all of our veterans and wounded warriors.
The party that passed the G.I. Bill of Rights will always work to protect the benefits our veterans and their families have earned in service to our nation.
We recognize that violence against women and girls is an epidemic, and stand firm in the need for a societal shift and the prosecution of perpetrators.
Democrats are pro-choice.
