The League of Women Voters of Texas (LWV-TX) knows that it is very important for that Texans vote to elect their representatives, yet Texas has low voter participation. Texans can foster the tradition of voting for their community and proudly set an example for informed voting.
Elections matter to the future of Texas communities and the quality of life of their residents. Providing voter education in your community organization, business, school, or nonprofit, helps citizens create the tradition of voting and become more involved in their communities.
Voter Education Resources
The Be a Texas Voter campaign provides voter education resources for Texas community organizations.

"The way the Texas document is written makes it, perhaps paradoxically, both fairly easy to amend and highly restrictive in the powers it grants, making frequent and often highly specific changes necessary." (Chris Hooks)
