Empowering VOTERS. DEFENDING DEMOCRACY.

The League of Women Voters of Houston is a nonpartisan organization that believes in the power of every person to create a more perfect democracy. Together, we support the desire, right and knowledge for all to participate and be heard.

Upcoming Events

Join us in celebrating the 2021-2022 LWV Rising Stars and Women’s Equality Day!* Along with fun and networking, light refreshments will be provided — and the first 50 to arrive will receive a complimentary adult beverage. A silent auction benefitting the Rising Stars program will offer some cool items benefiting the LWV. So make plans to join us at the White Rhino on Thursday, August 25.

Please RSVP at risingstars@lwvhouston.org (so we have a good head count for food).

*Women’s Equality Day is August 26, but the Rising Stars are over-achievers so they are starting a day early. 😉

The League of Women Voters of Houston is co-sponsoring Women's Equality Day at The Heritage  Society on August 26, 2022.

Please RSVP to info@heritagesociety.org by Wednesday, August 24.  This event is free to women's organizations who support the cause of equality.  Parking is free at 212 Dallas Street, by the Kellum-Noble House.
About Women's Equality Day:  In 1973, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The date was selected to commemorate the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality.

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.
