Register to Vote with the League of Women Voters
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, political organization that came into being as a force for obtaining “votes for women” in 1919. The Austin League was the first League Chapter to be founded and it has been existence here since that time.
Our mission is to encourage informed and active participation in government, influencing public policy through education, advocacy, and increased voter participation.
The League exists at 3 levels: U.S., Texas., local areas
- U.S.: http://lwv.org/
- TX: http://lwvtexas.org/
- Austin Area: http://lwvaustin.org/
We partner with like-minded individuals, organizations, and businesses to help make democracy work. October is National Book Month and, in partnership with Book Woman, the League of Women Voters Austin Area, will have Volunteer Deputy Registrars on hand at the store during business hours. We will be able to help people who:
- Need to register for the first time in Travis County,
- Have moved within Travis County and need to update their information with the County Election Office,
- Have questions about voter eligibility,
- Have questions about proper voter identification,
- Have questions about upcoming elections
- Are interested in becoming involved with The League of Women Voters as a member, volunteer, or newsletter subscriber.
Without waiting until October 7, you may sign up for the League of Women Voters newsletter (text VOTER to 42828 to get started)
Please join us for The League annual fall kick-off, which is open to the public at no charge (see below). RSVP’s are requested at https://lwvaustin.org/.
