DPNM Chairwoman Debra Haaland Works to Register Voters in Shiprock

Shiprock, N.M. – As part of the Democratic Party of New Mexico’s Tribal and Rural Community Initiative, Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, traveled to Shiprock to register voters on the Navajo Primary Election Day.

“Voter registration is the first step to making your voice heard in an election, and at the Democratic Party of New Mexico we are committed to reaching out to our tribal and rural communities to ensure their voices are heard,” said Debra Haaland Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.

The primary elections to elect Navajo chapter officials were held on August 30. The Navajo Nation has a tradition of gathering the community together to vote and participate in their elections. The voters registered this week will be able to participate in the general election November 8.

As a continued effort, the Democratic Party of New Mexico will work with San Juan County Democrats to register voters at the Northern Navajo Nation Fair in October.
