CLERK ANNOUNCES SERIES OF VOTER ENGAGEMENT MEETINGS

CLERK ANNOUNCES SERIES OF VOTER ENGAGEMENT MEETINGS

 

            The Doña Ana County Clerk’s Office will host a series of free community conversations about voter participation throughout the county in July.

            The meetings will feature small group conversations in which people can give feedback on the process of voting in their communities, as well as motivations behind participation.

            “When only nine percent of people are showing up to vote in local elections, democracy is in crisis,” County Clerk Scott Krahling said. “We are ready to do our part to step up and save it. These events are one part of our larger plan to build a voting culture in Doña Ana County.”

            The dates and times for the community conversation meetings are as follows:
