Your Help Needed for the Sandoval County Coordinated Campaign

The 2018 is one of the most, if not the most, critical election in our lifetime.

The General Election campaign is in the homestretch!  We are just over 30 days away from Election Day.

We can win this election by canvassing, telephone banking, talking-to our friends, telling everyone we know how important this election is and keeping up the momentum.
You Can HELP!!!

The Coordinated Campaign is making a major effort at Canvassing in Sandoval County.

We canvass by going door to door.  Canvassing is fun!!  You get to meet great new people!!!

The Coordinated Campaign provides a packet for canvassing for each canvass shift of 30 to 40 houses.

The packet contains:

A clip-board,
A script guide to lead you in carrying on a conversation and asking the voter to vote for our candidates,
A map of the houses targeted for canvassing and a list of the voters and addresses.
Campaign information.

Packets are picked up from the DPSC Office at 1520 Deborah Road, Suite K, Rio Rancho (Behind Hot Tamales on 528) and returned to that office upon completion.

If you are unable to walk door-to-door, perhaps you can drive someone who will go door-to-door.
We need both drivers and walkers!

Democrats always step up when needed!  Volunteer today!
Most of all, it is important that each and every one of us vote.  Every vote counts!!!

To volunteer, please email contact information to

Political Campaign Signs

October 10, 2018

Many of us have noticed that in Rio Rancho our opposition candidates are not always following the City of Rio Rancho rules and regulations on placing political signs on the city street right-of-ways.  These are illegally placed and a request has been made to the City of Rio Rancho to have the signs removed. All political signs placed on the City of Rio Rancho Street right-of-ways require a green sticker permit which has been purchased from the City of Rio Rancho.  The number of green sticker permits allowed for each candidate is restricted in number.

Political signs placed on private property do not require a City of Rio Rancho green sticker permit.
Additionally, there have been signs seen for our Democratic Candidates placed on Rio Rancho street right-of-way that do not have the green sticker permits issued by the City of Rio Rancho.  These have been placed there illegally and will be removed by the City of Rio Rancho.

Please be aware that if you as a concerned voter pick-up a sign from any of the candidates for office it must have a green sticker purchased form the City of Rio Rancho if you are going to place the sign on a City of Rio Rancho Street right-of-way.

The Democratic Party of Sandoval County Office at 1520 Deborah Lane, Suite K has signs for various political candidates.  These signs are provided for residential/private property only and we do not provide green sticker permits for them.

Each political candidate is responsible for determining where to place campaign signs on public right-of-ways and purchasing green sticker permits for them.  Please do not take it upon yourself to place signs against City of Rio Rancho Rules and Regulations.

We as Democrats follow the law.  Please do not place a political sign on a Rio Ranch Street right-of-way unless you are asked to do so by a candidate, and if so, please ensure that such signs bear proper permits.

Thank you,
Thomas R. Buckner, Chairman DPSC

Challengers Needed

As we approach Election Day, November 6, 2018, the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) is preparing for the event.  One of the most important activity is Election Protection.

Election Protection involves, among other things, having Challengers and Poll Watchers at each polling location as needed.  (Challengers may challenge a vote, Poll Watchers may only observe, and report to DPNM, any issue about voting.)

In preparation for Challengers and Poll Watchers, DPNM has provided a great training Manual for Challengers.  Now is the time to be preparing for the event.

The polls are open from 7:00 A.M. until 7:00 P.M. on Election Day.  However, you will not be required to be there all day as I am working to obtain enough workers to enable shifts.

Whatever time you have available on that day is important.  Please volunteer.

If you are interested in serving as a Challenger on Election Day, I would love to hear from you.

Please email me at or telephone me at 505-331-8262 to volunteer.

Chairman, Democratic Party of Sandoval County

NM For All Democratic Campaign


Hello Democrats!

My name is Hannah Johnson and I am the Field Organizer for Sandoval County for the NM For All Democratic Campaign.  If I have not met you yet I would love to do so! I manage the office but I am your representative from the statewide Coordinated Campaign and handle organizing all the field efforts.

My volunteer coordinators are Joel Wadsworth and Alex Piland.  We are working with the Sandoval County Democratic Party Chairman Tom Buckner to ensure our office runs smoothly.  He, Sue Buckner, and Pat Stover have done a fantastic job regarding our reception area and the Sandoval County Democrats office which is in our office as well!

We need candidates elected who represent our values.  Candidates who will fight for us, our state, and our rights.  We can only elect those candidates if democrats show up to the polls.  The way we can do that is through calling folks and going door to door to inform people about the upcoming election. This has been statistically proven to be the most effective way to turn out votes. We need volunteers to ensure we have a straight democratic party ticket elected this November.  No race is ever ensured and we need to fight every day to elect our fantastic candidates.

Please call me today to schedule a time to come in.  Our office hours are 10am-8pm Monday-Thursday and 10am-530pm Friday-Sunday.  However, to ensure we are ready for you to come in we need to have you scheduled because we do close at times when we need to canvass and when meeting occur.

We Canvass every Saturday and Sunday out of our office at 1520 Deborah rd.  at 10am on Saturday and 12pm on Sunday!

Here are a few links to sign up online:
