The Progressive Voters Guide is an annual project of ProgressNow New Mexico and Fuse Washington. Starting in 2023, we will be combining the endorsements of New Mexico's leading progressive organizations with research about candidates and ballot measures to give you the information you've been searching for to be an informed voter. We are excited to provide this resource to New Meixcans and hope you will visit our website to read our thorough candidate research and trusted recommendations.
How do you choose which candidates and ballot measures to recommend?
ProgressNow New Mexico staff research and compile the endorsements from our Progressive Voters Guide partner organizations, which are listed below. In most cases, we recommend candidates and ballot measures that have been endorsed by at least one of these partner organizations. In races where the endorsements are split, we strive to show voters which candidate has received the most support. We also seek input from partners and local community members to determine a candidate’s values and priorities.
While we are thrilled to launch our first New Mexico specific progressive voter guide, unfortunately, we are not able to make recommendations for every candidate in every jurisdiction. Due to limited staff and funding, we are focusing our efforts for the 2023 municipal elections solely on Albuquerque and Las Cruces City Council and School Board races. If you believe we have omitted a key race in these two cities, or made an error, please let us know by using the “feedback” link above.
