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.

THE LATEST

Our Rising Stars program recognizes an elite group of competitively selected Houstonians who have contributed to civic life and are poised to do much more. We offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement. Applications are due by Friday, July 30.

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.

Remembering 2020...A Year Like No Other

OUR INITIATIVES

Naturalization Ceremonies

With the partnership of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, our volunteers attend Naturalization Ceremonies and register new voters. Each year, we help 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.
