Learn About the Houston Voters Guide

The League of Women Voters of Houston is a nonpartisan organization that does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. Since 1920, the League’s mission has been to support active and informed citizen participation in government. We believe that voting is a vital part of Making Democracy Work.

The League of Women Voters of Houston Education Fund publishes the Voters Guide to help each voter cast an informed vote. This Voters Guide covers races and ballot issues that appear on the March 3, 2020 Primary Election ballot.

The responses provided by candidates are reproduced without editing or verification. Each candidate is personally and solely responsible for the content of his/her response. Candidates are listed in the order in which they will appear on the ballot.

No portion of this Voters Guide may be reproduced for use in political campaigns or advertising. Other proposed uses are permitted only with advance written authorization of the League of Women Voters of Houston Education Fund.

How League of Women Voters Assembles the Voters Guide

The League of Women Voters of Houston contacts all candidates in contested races. These candidates are asked to respond to our candidate questionnaire with biographical information and answers to questions about important issues.

Each candidate’s response is reproduced exactly as submitted without editing or verification. Each candidate is personally and solely responsible for the content of his/her response. Candidates are advised that their responses are character limited. Candidates who fail to respond to our invitation to participate in the Voters Guide are listed with the notation, “No response received.” Candidates without a photo did not submit one.

The League of Women Voters does not request responses from unopposed candidates. Names of unopposed candidates are listed in the Voters Guide, followed by the notation “Unopposed.” Candidates are advised that the League of Women Voters reserves the right not to print obscenities, slurs, or egregious personal attacks.

Candidates and races are listed in the order in which they will appear on the official ballot published by the Harris County Clerk.
