Our candidate forums have all been held for this year. But you can still hear from the candidates themselves by watching the videos below of each forum.
For these forums all questions to be asked of the candidates were submitted by the public.
The League will determine which questions will be asked and will attempt in good faith to cover areas of interest expressed by the audience. Questions will be screened and similar questions will be consolidated so as many topics as possible can be covered. No questions of a personal nature or that are inappropriately hostile or unclear in intent will be asked.
The candidates have received ground rules for this event in advance:
As audience members, we ask you to remain as quiet as possible so that everyone may hear. Disruptions will have consequences for candidates. Also please hold applause until the forum has ended so candidates will have all the time possible to answer your questions.
View your sample ballot : .
The sample ballot shows a list of the candidates and ballot questions you'll be voting on. Information is posted about 45 days before an election.
A sample ballot is not available for all local elections. You may need
to contact the local government (city, town or school district) holding
the election. This link will personalize your ballot according to your
home address. You can print this ballot and bring it with you to forums
and the polls.
If you have questions for your candidates please contact them directly, their contact information is included in each post.
It is our goal to have a civil discussion of the issues and provide some information you need to know when you vote in November .
