GLBT Political Caucus Endorsements

Find Your Early Voting Location

The following lists are the endorsements from the Houston GLBT Political Caucus, a non-partisan organization, the Houston Area Stonewall Democrats, and the Houston Stonewall Young Democrats for the November 2 election. These organizations screen individuals running for office and help decide which candidates are most prepared and best able to serve the LGBT community. The Caucus endorsement list includes only individuals who actually screened with the Caucus. Some LGBT-friendly candidates may have chosen not to screen because they are running unopposed in the upcoming election.
