Taking Action

The League of Women Voters of New Mexico's LWVNM Action Page is useful to anyone trying to be active in the New Mexico law-making process.

It includes information on the League's priorities for the current session, a guide to the Legislative Website, and helpful documents on how to get started lobbying at the legislature, whether you want to lobby for yourself, for the League, or for another organization.
