This year, in addition to our US House and Senate reps, New Mexico will elect a new governor and other leaders to important state executive positions. All 70 state House seats are up for election. Science policy issues are more and more critical, affecting our economy, public health, education, safety and security, and even our recreation. We have a great opportunity to improve the future of our state by being better informed citizens and strengthening democratic processes. And if we want science to serve us, then we need to vote for candidates who will let it. Cast your vote for science at the primaries.
*In order to cast votes in a closed primary election, voters must register a political party affiliation. Check or update your voter registration at least 28 days before the election: https://www.bernco.gov/clerk/voter-registration.aspx
