Jerrie Champlin, publicity director for the League of Women Voters of the Comal Area (LWVCA) said the group’s nonpartisan Voter Guide for the May 1 General Election is now available online.

Early voting for the May 1 General Election begins April 19.

To learn more about the candidates running for New Braunfels and Bulverde city councils, and New Braunfels and Comal ISD boards of trustees, visit VOTE411.org.

Information also is provided about races in Marion.

Printed election-information handouts also are distributed at all local libraries and food banks.

Recorded candidate forums also can be viewed on LVWCA’s Youtube channel,@LWVComalArea.

“These local elections give voters the most bang for their ballots,” said LWVCA President Roxanna Deane. “But there isn’t the intense media coverage of national elections and some may not be aware of the election or where to find information.

“Our goal is to make the nonpartisan information easy-to-find, increase awareness of the impact of these local elections and increase turnout,” she said. “VOTE411.org is the nation’s premier online election resource that is unbiased, relevant and easy to use. VOTE411.org helps millions of voters each year — many of them young people and first-time voters — learn about candidate stances, look up what’s on their ballot, find their polling place, and more.

“Type in your address and get information on the candidates and issues that you will find on your personal ballot, including candidate answers to questions posed by the local leagues on the challenges facing their local communities. You can print a list of your ballot choices to take into the voting booth,” Deane said.

The League of Women Voters is a 501(c)3, nonpartisan political organization that encourages the informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. LWV does not support or oppose candidates for office or political parties.
