Candidates Forum


The League of Women Voters of Hays County will hold a Forum for the Primary Candidates for the U. S. and State Representatives and State Senator. The Forum will be Thursday, Feb. 15, at 6:30 p.m., at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins Street.

Candidates invited to speak are for the offices of U.S. Representative Districts 21, 25, and 35, along with State Senator District 25 and State Representative District 45.

Due to the large number of candidates for these races, candidates will not debate but will have the opportunity to briefly introduce themselves and outline their qualifications for the office they seek. They will also be able to meet and greet citizens and distribute campaign literature.

The Forum will be video recorded and provided to all local news media. It will be available for viewing online a few days following the Forum.

Citizens are encouraged to use the non-partisan online guide to voting, Vote Upon entering a home address, a citizen can view and compare the candidates’ responses for a particular voting precinct.


Jeannie Lewis, Forum Coordinator, encourages all concerned citizens to attend the Forum to be informed of issues important to the community. Forum moderator is Kaylene Ray.

Previously known as San Marcos League of Women Voters, the League is a non-partisan organization open to both women and men dedicated to voter awareness and education.

The League believes in the representative form of government and individual liberties established in the Constitution of the United States. A guiding principle of the League is that “government depends upon the informed and active participation of its citizens and requires that governmental bodies protect the citizen’s right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions, holding open meetings and making public records accessible.”

In-person early voting begins Tuesday Feb. 20 and ends Friday, March 2. Election date for the Primary is Tuesday, March 6.

See the League’s Voters Guide for the location of local polling places, which may differ from past elections.
