VOTE41.org and the Voters Guide Are Ready to Inform Texas Voters!

Austin, TX - National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. Volunteers and organizations from all over the country, including Leagues across Texas, will “hit the streets” in a single day of coordinated activities to reach tens of thousands of voters.  To find a way to get involved, go to LWVTexas/League Finder and discover how to join the fun with your local League! 

 
In preparation for the Constitutional Amendment Election on November 2, the League of Women Voters of Texas is releasing their election Voter Guide for Texans prior to early voting. To create the Constitutional Amendment Voters Guide, each ballot proposition was researched and written by League volunteers. We strive to create fair and balanced coverage of the proposed amendments by reviewing enabling legislation, using a variety of resources and reaching out to authors and/or sponsors, supporters and opponents. This invaluable, unbiased educational resource is provided for the Constitutional Amendment election so that Texas voters can participate with confidence in our state government.
 
"We pride ourselves on holding the Voters Guide to a gold standard of non-partisanship. The League is dedicated to ensuring voters are fully informed with accurate information regarding proposed constitutional amendments, as well as the elections process," said Grace Chimene, President of the League of Women Voters of Texas.

 

The 2021 Constitutional Amendment Election on November 2nd includes eight proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. The League's Voters Guide  and the online interactive version of the Guide, VOTE411.org, provide understandable explanations and arguments for and against each of the proposed amendments. 


The League's Voters Guide can be accessed by Texans several ways:

  • The printed version of the Voters Guide will be available at many libraries and other locations where people gather across Texas, starting in early October,  

  • PDF versions of the Voters Guide in English and Spanish can be viewed online or printed at home is at lwvtexas.org,

  • Organizations and media may reproduce the Voters Guide, subject to: including a statement of the League’s nonpartisanship; the contents of the constitutional amendments must be included in its entirety without edits; and the League of Women Voters of Texas must be credited for producing the Voters Guide, and
