Programs and Trainings

LWV Hays County provides educational programs and trainings every year in communities around the county. 

In 2019, two major voting changes have been implemented. The Hays County Commissioners Court purchased new voting machines and have approved the use of Vote Centers. The League offers speakers on an educational program called "Ready to Vote 2019"  to interested organizations throughout the county.

Candidate Debates or Forums

Candidate forums by the League or other community organizations are a valuable service, providing one of the only opportunities voters have to listen to candidates offer more than just a brief sound bite. Forums provide an opportunity to hear what candidates are saying and to form your own opinions of the candidates based on your own observations.

When choosing a forum to attend or watch online, the League recommends selecting one that is non-partisan, has invited all declared candidates to participate, and covers a broad range of topics rather than a narrowly focused set of issues.

LWV Hays Co sponsors and moderates debates or forums at the local level, such as town council or city mayor races, as well as forums for statewide candidates. Under League rules, all filed candidates for a particular office must be invited to participate, and there must be more than one candidate present for the debate or forum proceed. If only one candidate accepts our invitation, we can hold a "Meet and Greet" but not a forum with a full seated audience. 

Additional League Voter Resources

Besides Vote411.org (detailed on a separate page here), the League of Women Voters of Texas (LWVTX) is rich in educational resources for voters throughout the state. The national League of Women Voters (LWVUS) offers resources to support state and local leagues.

 

Non-League Resources


Many additional voter information websites have become available in recent years, with the goal of informing the public and inspiring them to vote. A short list includes Ballotpedia.org, Vote.org, BallotReady.org, VoteSmart.org, TurboVote.org, VotingInfoProject.org, RockTheVote.com, IssueVoter.org, and iSideWith.com.

So there is no shortage of information. Don't be shy... get out there and learn what you need to know!
