The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. We influence public policy through education and advocacy. We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.
LWV invites you to sign a petition opposing the inclusion of a citizenship question on the Census. The US Constitution mandates an accurate count of all people living in the US - not all citizens. Lower participation could impact community resource allocation for safety, hospitals, transportation, and more. Here is the petition.
Many cities will hold local elections on May 5 for Mayor, City Council, and/or ISD Trustees. Early voting is in progress through May 1.
Prepare to be a voter!
All LWV-CC members are invited to the annual meeting on Saturday, May 12, from 11:30-1:00 at Spring Creek Barbecue (3623 Preston Road, Frisco, TX 75034). Officers and board members will be elected, and a budget and local program plan will be adopted. RSVP to email@example.com.
A runoff election will be held on May 22 for races in which no candidate received over 50% of the votes cast in the March 6 Democratic and Republican primary elections. Here are the Collin County results and state results.
If you voted in the primary election, then you may only vote in the same party's runoff election. The last day to register to vote is April 23. Early voting will take place from May 14-18. Here are Voters Guides.
You are invited to have lunch with the League of Women Voters of Collin County on the 2nd and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Enjoy lively conversation and delicious food (buy-your-own). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you plan to attend. We look forward to meeting you!
