Bernalillo Dems Spread Love, Not Hate

By Damian Lara, Ward Chair, 16A

On Sunday, August 18, Swing Left New Mexico teamed up with the Democratic Party of
Bernalillo County to spread love, not hate.  In light of the tragic events in El Paso and Dayton,
hand writing letters to our neighboring State seemed like the way to show Dems Care.  Because
every eligible voter in the Swing Left Texas campaign had already received a hand written letter
and accompanying voter registration by mail form, we decided to reach out to eligible voters in
Arizona.

Nearly 30 letter writers spread out in three conference rooms and wrote 570 letters to
prospective voters in Arizona!  It was so heartening to have this turnout, and people were really
motivated and grateful to have this opportunity to make a real difference together. 

Flora Lucero made the Letter Writing Party possible by hosting the event in the DPBC’s
downtown offices; and took care of printing costs, plus supplied envelopes and stamps for
those who couldn’t provide them.  Nancy Carr, representing Swing Left New Mexico, provided
instructions and helped train volunteers on the letter-writing and voter-registration-by-mail
process. 

Voter Registration By Mail is a powerful way to make a real difference together! We want to acknowledge and thank the following letter writing volunteers who are making waves to turn Arizona blue in the next election:
