Dear Friend of the League,


As a supporter of the League of Women Voters Austin Area, you know how important voting is. But so many people in Central Texas don’t make it to the polls. Why is that?


“I don’t know how to register to vote.”


“I don’t know what’s on the ballot.”


“I have a lack of knowledge on government positions. I’ll be honest, I remember we covered all this back in school but that was a long time ago.”


These were the answers Paloma received in the Facebook group Votes for Vanessa when she asked why people in her community weren’t voting. Votes for Vanessa was created to rally Paloma’s community after the murder of Specialist Vanessa Guillen in Fort Hood, Texas. Paloma and many of her friends and family in the Latino community were looking for justice for Vanessa and for change.
