Resources

Our September Units will look at some of the reasons Texas Voter turnout has been so low. Review the handout LWVTC September 2018 Unit Meetings Topic for an indepth look at this problem.

Also, please review the material that the LWVTX has put together on the Get Out The Vote page of their website: Questions for discussion regarding the information presented on the webpage:
1. Does the information on the state league's webpage cover promotion of voting adequately and effectively?
2. If yes, how? If not, what else is needed or could be better presented?
3. How can local LWV members, as individuals, best use this information to promote voting locally?
4. What should LWV Tarrant do as an organization to promote voting locally? The Board is taking suggestions so please give as many as you can think of. With each suggestion, list who / group(s) of people the suggestion would target.
