The LWV-TX 2016 General Election Voters Guide lists candidates in 21 contested national and state-level races who are on the November 8, 2016 General Election ballot and provides their answers to questions on issues that affect you ranging from the economy and the environment to social issues, such as immigration reform.

The LWV-TX 2016 General Election Voters Guide is funded and published by the League of Women Voters of Texas Education Fund.

Early voting begins October 24 and ends November 4.

Polls are open on Election Day, November 8, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Citizens that are in line by 7 p.m. will be able to vote on Election Day.
