Virtual phone training AND phone banking

 

We have already made over 300 calls and had a good response. Please help us get through this list before ballots begin to be mailed in early May.

Please RSVP for the training to: Frances Gonzales at fgonzales104@gmail.com as soon as you can.

Please call 505-398-0507 at 5:30 PM for a teleconference training. We will then make calls from 6:00-8:00 PM.

You will use your own cell or home phone, and need to be logged in to votebuilder.com. on your computer or other other device. Please follow this link to get to the Phone Bank a few minutes before the training.

Once you have been trained on Virtual Phone Bank, you can make calls at any time that suits you.

We are further encouraging people to vote by mail due to public health concerns. People can now apply online for an absentee ballot: www.nmvote.org

 

And finally, we are asking people to write-in Karen C Whitlock for State House District 38 on their ballots. 

Karen needs 106 write-in votes on June 2 to have her name printed on the general election ballot.

She filed to be a write-in candidate so there would be a Democratic choice in this majority Democratic district. 

 

Thank you very much for helping.
