Unite New Mexico Support

To bridge the growing partisan divide and fix our broken political system, Unite New Mexico aims to recruit and support independent candidates who:

  • Have strong character and integrity
  • Are aligned with our principles and approach to governance
  • Are able to run credible & viable campaigns

Depending on the candidate, office, and location, our support comes in many different forms –– ranging from a simple endorsement to access to our statewide network of campaign talent, volunteers, and donors.

We will evaluate opportunities on a rolling, case-by-case basis. If you are a candidate or are thinking about becoming a candidate, please fill out the form above and our team will quickly be in contact with you. You may also contact us at info@unitenm.us or by phone at (505) 278-7611.

Independent candidates must already be unaffiliated voters as of January 18, 2018. Candidates have from March 17th to June 26 to collect the required signatures from registered voters in their district to appear on the ballot for the State House or other elected office. Primary election day (June 5th) will be a great day to collect signatures since we can’t vote in our closed primary state.

One of the unique value propositions that independent candidates offer is the opportunity to introduce competition in our political system where it might otherwise be lacking. For that reason, we're targeting these districts where one of the two major parties will not have a candidate on election day 2018.
