About Us

Located in southeastern New Mexico, we seek to inspire and inform fellow Democrats from across the county to engage in the political process. No matter your background, we welcome everyone who has an open mind and heart; who’s willing to fight for change and progress. Our mission is to promote Democrats, fair and equal treatment for all, we believe everyone should be involved and everyone is entitled to exercise their right to vote and be heard. If change is what you seek and progress is what you value, then please join us!
We meet the first Wednesday of each month, at 6pm for now until we out grow it in the back room of Stellar Coffee.

We will be offering a hybrid type of meeting in that people who don’t want to be present and wearing a mask the entire time, can join us over Zoom. You must seek an email invite by requesting one at chavescountydems@gmail.com and we will send a zoom registration to you once we verify your status as a Democrat. This will prevent shenanigans others have experienced. Also, please note – questions will be monitored on the zoom chat room on a limited basis – primarily to ask candidates who will be visiting and talking to us over their zoom questions.

Just know that you are welcome and we want you join us in whatever fashion you can. For those unable to join monthly meetings, please check in on the Facebook page for continuing activities, events, promotions. And we will be starting a quarterly email – provided we find a creative volunteer for this venture. Anyone? Anyone?

And as always – we are very short of funds after two years of very little fundraising opportunities. We need to raise money for the upcoming Pre-primary delegate convention rental fee (February 12th) and then for the state convention here in Roswell on March 5, 2022. Please send a minimum of $20.00 each to help with rental fees and build up our bank account in preparation for a number of events we want to participate in this year. Every dollar helps.
