Upcoming Webinar: The Impact of New Election Laws on Voters

with Disabilities and Voters Over 65

December 15, 2021 - Noon - 1:00 PM

Austin - On Wednesday, December 15, 2021 at noon, the League of Women Voters of Texas will join The Arc of Texas, Disability Rights Texas, and REV UP Texas to present a free one-hour webinar to review the new election laws enacted by the 87th Texas Legislature. The presenters will focus on changes to vote by mail, curbside voting and giving assistance to voters. The goal of this webinar is to lessen the impact of election law changes felt by voters with disabilities and those  over 65.


The need for this informative presentation is explained by Grace Chimene, president of the League of Women Voters of Texas.  “We want to get voters ready well before the March 2022 Primary Election  so that they are not confused by or afraid of these election law changes.  This webinar will be helpful for all voters, but especially those who will be disproportionately affected such as disabled voters and voters over 65.  The March Primary Election is going to be an important election, with a large number of races and candidates.  Our goal is to reduce any barriers for Texas voters.“


The presenters will include:
