Q: What is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to help animals? Hint: It takes only a few minutes a couple times a year, but has impacts throughout the year.


Filling our Congress, state legislature, county commissions, city councils and other public offices with animal-friendly officials helps ensure that animal protection issues are given the credence that they deserve. Plus, it is a lot easier to get pro-animal bills and ordinances passed when the lawmakers are already on our side. Yet, to get animal-friendly lawmakers, all animal advocates need to vote!

Check out APV’s legislative scorecards to learn how your state legislators voted on animal-related bills.

Don’t forget the Primary Elections!

Many people only vote in the general elections, held each November. But it is important to vote in the primary elections as well, especially on the local and state levels. Some races are won or lost in the primary, with all contenders coming from the same political party. When you register to vote you must designate a political party in order to vote in that party’s primary election. The animals have friends and foes among all political parties, so the important thing is to vote!

For information on registering to vote, early and absentee voting and other important information to make your voting experience positive, please visit this page of the New Mexico Secretary of State's website.

Thank you for participating in the important process of voting! Remember–the animals can't vote, but you can!
