Poll Challenger Training

Poll Challenger Training

We are happy to report that our Poll Challenger Training has been extremely successful! To date we have trained 90 people to work in the polls. Even with that impressive number, we still need more volunteers to be trained as poll challengers. It is vital to have enough people to cover every precinct in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia and other nearby counties. Bilingual challengers are especially needed. We will need poll challengers throughout the early voting period as well as November 2nd and also during the counting of absentee ballots.   .
In order to schedule another training session in Albuquerque, we need at least ten people committed to attend.  Please consider being one of those ten!  We also have plans underway for training sessions in Rio Rancho, Los Lunas and possibly the East Mountain area.
Remember, having an adequate number of poll challengers is critical in the upcoming election.  Voter irregularities have been an issue in this state for many, many years and we need to do everything in our power to protect the integrity of our elections now! 
IMPORTANT!!  If you have attended a training session and have not yet received an email with the words "ATP Poll Challenger Training Information" in the subject line, please check your spam folder first, then send an email to  As is often the case with our sign-in sheets, we have some email addresses that are a little difficult to read and we have had some returned email labeled "undeliverable."
If you would like to volunteer for training or just have some questions, please send an email to

Citizens For Responsible Energy

While cap and trade may have breathed its last breath in Washington, proponents are still fighting for a job-killing, energy-cost-increasing, New-Mexico-only carbon cap (Case no. EIB 08-19). There will be a hearing where the public can voice their opinion on August 16 at 10:00 AM in Santa Fe. It is important that those who oppose the regulation be present. Public comment matters. You do not need to be an "expert" and you do not need to give a speech, but you should be prepared to simply stand up and state "I oppose the NEE green house gas cap petition." Based on the history of past hearings, you should plan to be there all day and the hearings may continue for several days. (If you cannot make it on the 16th, but could on the 17th or 18th, please call or text Marita at 505.239.8998 to determine if the hearings are still going on.)
If you cannot attend, you are still encouraged to voice your opinion via e-mail. Additional information on the proposed climate change regulations and instructions for submitting comments can be found on the Energy Makes America Great Facebook Fan Page.

The Environmental Improvement Board is stacked with members hand-picked by Governor Richardson who are likely to support the proposal, despite opposition by a broad-based coalition of businesses throughout the state. Additionally, several of the board members have severe conflict of interest issues. The Rio Grande Foundation has done extensive work looking into the conflicts.
Please mark the date on your calendar and plan to be there!
