Conversations With The Candidates
All ballot candidates for each selected office are invited to join us for a friendly discussion with League officials. We divide our hour among those candidates who are able to appear so that we enjoy an uninterrupted chat to explore each candidate’s background and opinions.
What We Do
Our volunteers attend naturalization ceremonies and register new voters. Each year, we help over 20,000 new citizens register to vote shortly after they’ve taken the oath of citizenship.
Learn more about the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area. LWV-Houston board trustee Annie Benifield talks about our work.
We produce a Voters Guide for every election. Our non-partisan approach allows the candidates to speak to the issues, and to speak for themselves.
Watch our roundtable discussion commemorating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Texas. This program was telecast live on May 24, 2018 and featured University of Houston/Downtown professor Gene Preuss, Linda Cohn of LWV-Houston and Leola Ross of LWV-Fort Bend.
Our volunteers participate in phone banking on election day, answering questions about poll locations and voter requirements.
Along with the state and national League, we have a series of issues we study and positions we take.
We host forums, debates, and innovative events for people interested in the political process.
Through our Rising Stars Program, we offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for an elite group of leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement.
