New Mexico Open Primaries: The mission of New Mexican Open Primaries is to make sure that every vote counts by getting at the root cause of our political dysfunction.  Our goals are to advocate for open and nonpartisan primary elections, educate voters and elected officials about why elections must be a state and not a party function, push for a non-partisan re-districting approach and help pass a New Mexico constitutional amendment that would establish everyone’s right to vote in all elections.
