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.

PRIMARY ELECTION RUNOFFS

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has postponed the May 26 primary election runoffs until July in response to the coronavirus outbreak. The elections are now scheduled for July 14, with early voting taking place June 29 - July 10. Click here for candidate details and important voter information. 

100 YEARS STRONG

2020 marks our Centennial Anniversary for the League of Women Voters. Founded just months before the 19th Amendment was ratified, today we support ALL voters (women and men) with an undiminished passion for equal voter access and education.

We have much to celebrate together and invite you to join us and be a part of our online community. Happy 100th birthday!

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.
