Voting is essential to a healthy democracy. The League of Women Voters Kerrville Area chapter conducts voter registration drives throughout the year, including having information available at its public forums and conducting "new voter" education and registration drives for the public, including eligible high school and college students. For more information about the chapter's voter registration activities, including ways in which you can help promote voter registration programs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
High School students who are 16 years or older now have an opportunity to participate in the electoral process by serving as ELECTIONS CLERKS at the polling place on election day. This program is designed to provide students with a greater awareness of the electoral process. Students will assist their local election officials by filling positions (paid) at their local polling place and working under the direction of the polling place presiding judge. For an application and more information, go to: http://WWW.SOS.STATE.TX.US
The League of Women Voter-Kerrville Area (LWV-KA) has an impressive history of hosting non-partisan candidate forums. We continue this tradition in the Spring of 2012 for the races with two or more candidates in Kerr County.
