Voting & Elections 02.23.2021

Tell Lawmakers you support Ranked Choice Voting!

RCV is a simple electoral reform that ensures a candidate receives a majority of the vote without a costly run-off election, and promotes civil campaigning and boosts voter engagement.

Round and Round Go Our Bills at the Roundhouse!

Want to know what good-government bills are moving at the NM Legislative Session, then read on for a peek at what we're working on!

Voting Rights Restoration and Judicial Public Financing on the move!

Two good government bills made strides advancing from committees in both chambers this week -- HB 74 ensures that re-entering citizens are able to participate in the political process in accordance with the Constitution, and SB 160 will help justices focus on their dockets, rather than fundraising, while also preventing possible conflicts of interest.

Money & Influence 02.3.2021

Let’s Expand Judicial Public Campaign Financing!

Public financing is one of the most effective ways to protect our judiciary from special interests and dark money, and also helps reduce conflicts of interest in the courtroom.

Voting & Elections 01.29.2021

The 2021 NM Legislative Session is Underway!

During the 2021 session, Common Cause New Mexico is advocating for expanding public financing of judicial races, adopting ranked choice voting, expanding voter access, redistricting reform, shining a light on campaign contributions and spending, and more transparency around lobbying activities.

Ethics 02.20.2020

Sine Die: Budget Cuts, Election Laws, and Moving Forward

At the beginning of our 54th Legislative Session, Common Cause New Mexico set our top priority to secure the funding needed for our newly created State Ethics Commission. We also supported legislation to modernize and improve our legislative structure, to reduce conflicts of interests by sending an amendment to the voters to allow for a professional and paid legislature and to increase our lowest-in-the-country judicial salaries and while some of these bills weren’t successful this session, we will keep them moving through the interim committee process to introduce again next year.
