Upcoming Elections

Where can I find information about important dates, forums, and VOTERS GUIDES?

The League of Women Voters of Richardson makes every effort to inform citizens about elections through VOTERS GUIDES and candidate forums. We are able to do this thanks to the community's generous support of the League of Women Voters of Texas Education Fund - Richardson Account. To make a donation to this fund, click here.
