The League of Women Voters of Texas is extremely disappointed some politicians in Texas choose to stomp on the efforts to create a culture of voting in Texas public schools.
The League of Women Voters of Texas is a member of the Texas Educator Votes coalition and enthusiastically supports its nonpartisan efforts to promote voting. Voting is what makes democracy work in Texas!
Educators all over Texas should proudly wear their "I Voted" sticker from voting in the Texas Primaries and the General Election. We encourage educators from all across Texas to check out the Texas Educator Votes website and sign the pledge to vote.
For many years the League has offered schools across Texas voter registration and voter education opportunities, which serve an educational purpose. The League’s web page “For Educators” encourages high schools to offer an educational early voting field trip for students with our Empowering High School Voters Toolbox.
The League provides the nonpartisan Voters Guide and Vote411.org to empower voters with the information they need to make an informed vote. Texas has open primaries. That means that ALL Texas voters can participate including educators! Voters who don’t strongly identify with any political party can and should carefully consider the choices and vote in the Texas Primary election on March 6, 2018.
The League of Women Voters of Texas never supports or opposes candidates or political parties.
