Nov. 5 election information posted

Under the Links menu, there's an Elections tab with dates, and links to resources and the Harris, Galveston and Brazoria county election offices.

This election has 10 proposed constitutional amendments on the ballot. For each one, there are links to the League of Women Voters and Ballotpedia information for that proposal, as well as a list of the legislators that sponsored it.

Email us at if there's something else you'd like to see added to it. 

Thursday candidate forum cancelled due to weather

Because the tropical disturbance that was once Imelda is lingering, the three clubs planning to host a forum for Houston City Council at-large candidates have decided to cancel the event. Bay Area Association of Democratic (BAAD) Women, Bay Area New Democrats (BAND) and Bay Area Democratic Movement (BADM) were set to sponsor a second candidate forum this election season on Thursday night at the Bay Area Community Center. It would be risky or difficult for many candidates and audience members to attend. No information is yet available about possibly rescheduling at a later date.
