It’s almost time to make your voice heard for animals—at the ballot box!
Every two years, the landscape for future animal protection policies changes in New Mexico, when voters elect or re-elect candidates to political office with the power to pass or defeat important legislation. And voting truly matters. Every single piece of legislation successfully passed to protect animals—like banning coyote killing contests in 2019 or establishing new spay/neuter funding sources in 2020—started with electing candidates who were poised to support those bills.
November 8, 2022, is the next Election Day, and it’s so important that voters like you who care about animals get involved.
If you didn’t vote in the last election cycle, or your information (like your address or your name) has changed, now is the perfect time to make sure you are correctly registered as a voter. And it’s easy!
You can learn more by visiting NMVOTE.ORG or contacting the New Mexico Secretary of State’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 827-3600. Or you can always reach out to us for help by emailing email@example.com.
The future of legislation—including bills to protect animals in domestic violence cases, to make bestiality a crime, and to protect horses and wildlife—rests on election outcomes. Thank you for getting out the vote for animals!
