Citizens are encouraged to use the non-partisan online guide to voting, Vote 411.org for information on the candidates and to read their responses to questions. Upon entering a home address, a citizen can view and compare the candidates who will be on their voting ballot.

Jeannie Lewis, Debate Coordinator, encourages all concerned citizens to attend the Forum to be informed of issues important to the San Marcos community and the Forum moderator will be Brenda Smith.

Previously known as San Marcos League of Women Voters, the League is a non-partisan organization open to both women and men dedicated to voter awareness and education.

The League believes in the representative form of government and individual liberties established in the Constitution of the United States. 

A guiding principle of the League is that  “government depends upon the informed and active participation of its citizens and requires that governmental bodies protect the citizen’s right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions, holding open meetings and making public records accessible.”

In-person early voting begins May 14 and ends May 18.  Election date for the Primary Runoff is Tuesday, May 22.
