Houston League Of Women Voters Has All The Facts—Texas Liberal Panel Of Experts

A few days I ago I drove the office of the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area so that I could get some election related materials. The Texas Liberal Panel of Experts has been pondering the upcoming election, but felt they needed additional information to make the best choices.

The League of Women Voters has many resources to share with the voting public. I’m including with this post photographs of the Texas Liberal Panel of Experts reviewing these materials.

Below is Hamburger Wearing An Astros’ Hat checking out the Harris County sample ballot that was provided to me by the League. Hamburger is dwarfed by the ballot. The ballot is even larger than this because it is printed on the other side as well.

You see that the Harris County sample ballot is printed in both Spanish and English. On the other side it is printed in Vietnamese. No matter how much the so-called Tea Party wishes otherwise, our city, county, state and nation are becoming more diverse each day.

The League provides an online service where you can build our own ballot.

Another of my expert panel, Cactus, is seen below reading 2010 Voters Key from the League. This booklet has the names and contact information of very many elected officials in Harris County. There are also facts here about the duties of each office. I think Cactus really enjoys this publication. Though so far Cactus has not said one way or another on the matter.

The final member of my expert panel, Samuel Slater Bobblehead Doll, is studying the LWV Voters Guide. This excellent guide features all the candidates for office offering their qualifications and responding to various questions. Samuel Slater Bobblehead enjoys reading this document from cover-to-cover. Here is the pdf file of the Houston voter’s guide.

The League of Women voters is of great value. They compile facts to help folks decide who to support at the polls , they sponsor debates of local candidates, and they put on events year-round to help inform the public.

Please make use of the League wherever it is that you live.

  1. I agree with your endorsement of the LWV as something to great value. I just completed a review of the guide published by the LWV of the Cincinnati Area. I like its title – “Who & What of Elections”.

    We all need to get out there and vote!

  3. I really miss receiving these guides in the newspaper. I never thought that it might be online. However,I’m not about to print out all those pages.
