Count Every Vote New Mexico

In 2008 Common Cause New Mexico created a nonpartisan voter protection program called Count Every Vote New Mexico (CEVNM). CEVNM is an election protection program for the state of New Mexico that seeks to ensure that every eligible voter who wants to vote can and that every vote is counted accurately. CEVNM is not affiliated with any party, candidate or issue campaign.

Voters who experience any difficulties while voting are encouraged to use the following hotlines to get live advice from our attorneys. These hotlines will be connected to response teams on the ground to address problems as they occur.

866-OUR-VOTE (English)

888-VE-Y-VOTA (Spanish)

Poll watchers are an integral part of the CEVNM project. Poll watchers are volunteers on Election Day who assist voters in obtaining information about accessing the ballot box. After attending a one-hour training, they will have answers to voters' frequently asked questions and have websites and toll free numbers to direct voters for additional assistance.
