STEP 2: GIVE OF YOURSELF

Donate at least a small portion of your energy and time to ACTIVELY support the National Popular Vote as a FOUNDATIONAL cause so that, first, we establish a way to count presidential votes that does not render 75% of the country politically irrelevant and then, with a president in place that the majority of us elected, all of the other things we care about likely will find a much more conducive environment for succeeding. It's not enough to support the National Popular Vote only in our hearts and minds.

STEP 4: WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR IN YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER

The National Popular Vote organization's "Writing a Letter-to-the-Editor in New Mexico" page provides an easy overview of New Mexico's major newspapers and then links to each paper's corresponding submission form (https://www.nationalpopularvote.com/writing-letter-editor-new-mexico). Depending on where you live, please also submit letters to the editor for smaller publications in your area. Doing so NOW will help raise public awareness about the National Popular Vote. Keep in mind that it may take several weeks for your letter to be published, so it's best to begin drafting soon.


For inspiration, here is the link to a letter to the editor by New Mexico Senator Mimi Stewart in support of the National Popular Vote, which was published in the Santa Fe New Mexican on November 7, 2018: http://www.santafenewmexican.com/opinion/letters_to_editor/let-s-all-support-the-national-popular-vote/article_340a5cc9-8a26-505e-b7af-ff4693474e30.html


And here is one more sample letter to the editor, this time by New Mexico Indivisibles for the National Popular Vote group member Deborah van Hecke in the Santa Fe Reporter on December 19, 2018, under the paper's interesting letter title "Pop Culture": https://www.sfreporter.com/news/letterstotheeditor/2018/12/19/letters-to-the-editor-62/
