Naturalization Ceremonies

With the partnership of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, our volunteers are a presence at Naturalization Ceremonies to register new voters. Before Covid, we would routinely provide an on-the-spot service, each year helping more than 25,000 new citizens register to vote shortly after they’ve taken the oath of citizenship.

Voters Guide

Our nonpartisan Voters Guide is Houston's best election information source with everything you need to know about voting, candidates and ballot issues. It’s now available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese.

Reserve a Voter Registrar

We deploy Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrars (VDVRs) across the greater Houston area, allowing you to register people to vote at your next event. Read more about our efforts that have registered more than 21,500 new citizens to vote this year alone.

Partner for Democracy

The Nonpartisan Voters Guide is generously sponsored by the Houston Chronicle.

Candidate Conversations

Every election year, we host educational forums with candidates running for office in Houston and Harris County. Every candidate is invited to join in the conversation and asked questions based on the jurisdiction where they are seeking office.

Rising Stars

Through our Rising Stars program, we offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for a selected elite group of leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement.
