Spring Forward for LWV-CA
“Spring Forward” is the theme of a 7 p.m. Saturday, April 2 public fundraiser for League of Women Voters-Comal Area (LWV-CA).
Kara Bliss band performs at the event in the meeting room of Unitarian Universalists of New Braunfels, 135 Alves Lane, New Braunfels.
Included in the $20 admission fee are wine, snacks, desserts and coffee.
“We are so pleased to be bringing Kara back for her third performance in support of the work of LWV-CA,” says LWV-CA President Roxanna Deane. “The audiences have always responded warmly to her delightful voice and her selections from a wide range of composers, from Cole Porter to Paul McCartney.”
The proceeds from the performance will fund LWV-CA activities and programs.
“This concert gives the community a chance to contribute to our efforts and have an enjoyable evening at the same time,” Deane says.
Advance tickets may be purchased online at or at the door
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
LWV-CA outreach includes:
- Voter Registration- Members are trained by the Comal County Elections Office as Volunteer Deputy Registrars. For the past two years, Comal ISD asked LVW-CA to register eligible 18-year-olds to vote during lunch periods in the three CISD high schools in the fall and spring before elections. On National Voter Registration Day, the organizations hosts voter-registration events around the county.
- Voters Guides – LWV-CA prepares printed Voter Guides which include candidates’ responses to questions, pros & cons about ballot measures, dates and locations for early voting, polling places on Election Day, and voter ID requirements. The group works with New Braunfels-Herald Zeitung to provide information about local, state and national candidates in contested races.
- Vote411.org — This online resource provides the same information as printed voter guides but is personalized by address so voters see all contested races on the ballott in their areas and can download specific information before voting.
- Candidate Forums — Candidates for contested local races are invited to respond to written questions from participants. Forums are moderated and conducted according to LWV guidelines. Last fall, LWV-CA hosted a forum for candidates running for Comal County sheriff. In April, the group will host a candidate forum about Comal ISD’s proposed bond.
- Public Forums — LWV-CA recently hosted forums about immigration procedures for women and children asylum-seekers, school financing and water quality in Comal County.
