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.

With the partnership of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, our volunteers are a presence at Naturalization Ceremonies to register new voters. Before Covid, we would routinely provide an on-the-spot service, each year helping more than 25,000 new citizens register to vote shortly after they’ve taken the oath of citizenship.
Our nonpartisan Voters Guide is Houston's best election information source with everything you need to know about voting, candidates and ballot issues. It’s now available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese.
Reserve a Voter Registrar
We deploy Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrars (VDVRs) across the greater Houston area, allowing you to register people to vote at your next event. Read more about our efforts that have registered more than 21,500 new citizens to vote this year alone.
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.
Every election year, we host educational forums with candidates running for office in Houston and Harris County. Every candidate is invited to join in the conversation and asked questions based on the jurisdiction where they are seeking office.
Through our Rising Stars program, we offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for a selected elite group of leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement.
