The League of Women Voters of Texas conducted its eighth review of all 254 Texas county election websites in February 2022 in preparation for the March 2022 Primary Election. Based on a set of criteria regarding the presence and quality of election information, the League awards points to each county’s website. The League commends the 56 county election websites that we rated as "outstanding" and the 36 websites that we rated as "very good". The League offers our congratulations to those counties and celebrates all the counties, large and small, that seek to meet the needs of their voters.
Texas held the first 2022 primary election in the nation under the additional stress of a new, massive election bill, Senate Bill 1, which created even more challenges for the Secretary of State, county election officials and voters in Texas. Such challenges were evident in our review of the county election websites.
It is critical that the Secretary of State collaborate with counties well before the November General Election to address the obstacles voters faced in the primaries. Ensuring a safe and secure election while providing voters with the information they need to participate fully in our democracy should be a priority for the Texas Legislature, the Texas Secretary of State and county election officials. The League of Women Voters of Texas will continue to support voter education and provide useful information to encourage voters to participate in our elections.
