LWV Houston Needs Your Help!

Please help the League of Women Voters of Houston by donating funds to pay for printing costs.

It is becoming very difficult for us to provide registration forms to new voters in Texas. LWV Houston provides at least 4,000 voter registration forms to new citizens at naturalization ceremonies each month. Additionally, hundreds of registration forms are distributed to eligible voters at local voter registration events hosted by LWV Houston and community partners.

In the past, the Secretary of State's Office provided these forms upon request to organizations across the state. Recent requests have been denied. Read more about the challenges LWV Houston has been experiencing here.

Democracy is Good For Business!

The League of Women Voters of Texas, the Texas NAACP, and the Texas LULAC are partnering to engage Houston businesses of all sizes in a conversation about how voting should be safe and accessible and why politicians should encourage their communities to vote. Learn more below.

LWV-Houston's Professor Dr. Gene Preuss talks about the history and continuing challenges of voting rights in Texas with Christina Das and Brielle Morton of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

OUR INITIATIVES

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.

Phone Banking

In partnership with KPRC-TV, League volunteers participate in phone banking on Election Day—answering questions about polling locations, registration status and other voter requirements. They work to ensure that anyone who is registered to vote can participate in the political process by casting a ballot.

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.
