ENCOURAGE THE GOVERNOR TO SIGN THE BILL

STEP 1: USE EASY AUTOMATED SYSTEM TO EMAIL YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS AND OFFICIALS (EARLY JANUARY)

The National Popular Vote organization offers a quick way to ask your New Mexico legislators and officials to support the National Popular Vote bill (http://www.national-popular-vote.com/Campaign/NM/NM6).


After pressing the SEND EMAILS button you will receive an email confirmation that lists the names of the state legislators and officials to whom your message was sent along with other actions you can take.


Since your message destination was custom-tailored to your zip code, the names shown under YOUR LEGISLATORS in the confirmation email are the New Mexico Representative and Senator for whom you are a CONSTITUENT, which means that you live in their legislative district and have voting power over their political careers.


But note that this will not necessarily reach the committee members who are the actual decision-makers determining the National Popular Vote bill's future. See STEP 4 below for details on that essential action.


Congratulations, New Mexico!

The full New Mexico Senate PASSED our state's National Popular Vote bill (House Bill 55) the evening of March 12, 2019. It's now on to the governor!


A heartfelt thank you to everyone who actively supported this nationally important bill and helped the Land of Enchantment stand on the right side of history!


But your work is not quite done. Please complete the following remaining ACTION STEPS to actually have House Bill 55 enacted into law:

STEP 1: Encourage the governor to sign House Bill 55 no later than April 5, 2019

New Mexico's newly elected governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, offers an easy way to contact her via the governor's website:

https://www.governor.state.nm.us/contact-the-governor/


In addition, you also can request a meeting with Governor Lujan Grisham:

https://www.governor.state.nm.us/contact-the-governor/request-a-meeting/


Consider preparing a brief "elevator speech" to tell Governor Lujan Grisham why you support New Mexico's National Popular Vote. A good starting point for creating such a brief speech are the letters to the editor published on behalf of House Bill 55. Click here for a few New Mexico examples.

STEP 2: Thank your New Mexico representative and senator for their House Bill 55 support (if applicable)

To begin, check the vote analysis for both the full House and full Senate. The vote analysis' links to the related New Mexico Legislature documents lead to each legislator's name and individual vote. To look up your legislators' contact information, consult the New Mexico Legislature website's Find My Legislator page.


In addition, you also might like to see whether your state legislators were official sponsors or co-sponsors of the bill.
