Arts Vote Dallas

Welcome Arts Dallas Voters!

Arts Vote Dallas aims to engage candidates running for office in Dallas about arts, culture and creative expression and the role they play in building a more vibrant, connected and equitable Dallas. If there is ever a time to openly debate a vision for our communities and think about what is possible, it is our elections.

On May 4th, Dallas voters went to the polls to vote for whom they wanted to represent them in the mayoral and city council elections. 

For a complete list of election results, visit www.DallasCountyVotes.org. And, with the mayoral and multiple city council seats headed for a run off election on Saturday, June 8th, another good resource for the election is www.VOTE411.org brought to you by the League of Women Voters/Texas.

If you were a candidate, there were multiple opportunities for you to share your thoughts and opinions about arts and culture with the community through a questionnaire, participating in a forum, attending a Meet & Greet, and more. A list of resources has been provided for you below (including questionnaires completed by candidates still in the run-off election). 

If you are a voter, please see the resources that were assembled for you below including voter information, calls to action, Meet & Greets and more. Thank you all for being engaged in this important effort!
