Get Out the Vote Presentation

Citizens need to learn how important their role as voters is. League of Women Voters has created an educational slideshow intended as an educational tool for new voters. It is very basic. It is designed for Texas voters and some slides are specifically for the Dallas area. Please feel free to download and use it as you see fit. If you present it exactly as is with no changes, we ask that you identify it as a LWV Dallas presentation. You are welcome to make changes or extract information to suit your needs, but if you make any changes at all, we ask that you do not mention the LWV Dallas in connection with your presentation.
