Unless you live under a rock–which is especially difficult in the gumbo ‘soil’ in much of our region–you know the importance of voting.
Not sure whether you are registered or how to register? Not sure about the next election? You can visit votetexas.gov or contact the election official for your county (listed below).
As always, we encourage you to visit the League of Women Voters of Houston to learn more about candidates. The League, which is celebrating 100 years of service, is nonpartisan organization that believes in the power of every person to create a more perfect democracy–and they have a great voters guide.
We find inspiration in the Environmental Voter Project and the Climate Reality Action Fund campaigns, as well as the report on civic engagement completed by the Greater Houston Community Foundation with the Kinder Institute at Rice University. We encourage you to learn more.
