Join us, this month, for a mock election for children (of all ages!) to choose our first-ever Varner-Hogg Mascot. We'll meet seven candidates inspired by actual animal friends who called Varner-Hogg home (see the Photo Gallery below). On August 15, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. we'll have in-person primary voting, during our Farmers Market, to narrow the candidates to two, and then, hold our election on November 1, 2 & 3. We will also have online voting through our Facebook Page. Along the way, we'll explore the history of politics and voting rights in Texas, including the role women have played in local, state and national politics.
