NEW MEXICO: Somos Un Pueblo Unido Getting Out the Vote

Norma Moreno sends these photos from New Mexico:

New Mexico immigrants' rights organization Somos Un Pueblo Unido has been hard at work registering hundreds of first-time Latino voters and providing information about the voting process to thousands more who, although already registered, were considered "unlikely to vote." Over 75 Latino youth, immigrants and allies canvassed and phone banked the fastest growing Hispano/Latino working class district in Santa Fe, neighborhoods where Somos members work and live. On Election Day dozens of volunteers, many who are not eligible to vote themselves, are helping voters get to the polls and making sure that our community's vote counts.
