Make an appointment with your public officials or just stop by!

Go visit your public official at their local office or at the state Capitol.

  • Talk with your official or their staff
  • Bring information about League LWV-TX priority issues
  • Smile! Use talking points on priority issues.

Be sure and have lunch at the Capitol Grill (the grilled cheese sandwich is delicious) and be sure and stop by the Capitol Gift shop to buy a Texas gift for yourself.
