There’s a lot of interest in the suffrage wagon coming from New Mexico. People are fascinated with this part of American history, no matter where they live. While New Mexico wasn’t high profile in the suffrage movement, the state’s women played an important part in the overall movement. Adelina “Nina” Otero-Warren played a key role in the state organizing. New Mexico Senator Andrieus A. Jones, an attorney and former Las Vegas mayor, chaired the Senate Suffrage Committee, and he found himself in a difficult position between the suffragists, the anti-suffragists and the U.S. president.
During 2022 and 2023, New Mexico activists made sure a suffrage road marker was installed in Las Vegas, NM for NM Senator Andrieus A. Jones. Otero-Warren was honored in Santa Fe.
