WHO WE ARE Good Day and Greetings Citizens from the Democratic Party of Lincoln County, New Mexico (DPLC)      


We Democrats stand undivided, as equals, for democracy’s values in the United States of America and all its states and territories. As you may know, the DPLC adopted the democratic values to respect, rebuild and reunite Americans in furtherance of a more perfect union for its campaign theme. In order to broaden and deepen the DPLC’s effectiveness in representing registered Democrats, our current members want more participants from throughout Lincoln County. We don’t charge dues; we are currently conducting Strategy Committee Meetings and monthly Membership meetings. We communicate as a network through occasional phone/video chats, emails, texts, and US mail. We have a Facebook page and a website (  Our DPLC membership is diverse, living throughout Lincoln County, in or near the unique communities of Carrizozo, Corona, Nogal, Capitan, Lincoln, Hondo, Ruidoso Downs, Ruidoso and Alto. Our members will conduct voter registration drives throughout Lincoln County and recruit interested citizens to consider “throwing their hat in the ring” for municipal, county and state elective and appointive positions in government. It is our wish to encourage them and their supporters to become active in the Democratic Party of Lincoln County.  DPLC members support and contribute to advising local, state and nationally elected officials through the DPLC, other associations, and individually.


Our members recruit, meet and vet political candidates and endorse qualified Democrats for public offices. Members are registered Democrats who want to learn more about government, its effects on our lives day to day and for our lifetimes in Lincoln County, in local, state and national (federal) jurisdictions. We believe in participative democracy where our thoughts and voices contribute to the public dialogue and strive to make a noticeable difference in outcomes. Primary and General Election campaigns are organized undertakings by candidates and their advisors and supporters to market candidacies through voter registration, educational and Get-Out-the-Vote (GOTV) campaigns. The DPLC endeavors to get more Democrats on the ballot, which means to support and encourage qualified registered Democrats to declare their candidacies. The DPLC can assist candidates to plan and execute the vast person-to-person and multi-media contacts necessary as well as to attract voter commitments. Ultimately, the DPLC will secure votes. Democratic Party of Lincoln County members are volunteers protecting and defending our democracy’s values, and we are reaching out to all like-minded citizens to join us.
