Request a Candidate or Issues Forum

The League of Women Voters, with its 100-year history of providing non-partisan leadership, moderates  candidate and ballot initiative forums before elections.  These events ensure that citizens have access to their candidates (or issue proponents and detractors), are able to ask questions and get real time answers, and ensure information is moderated to stay fact-based and issue-focused.

LWV Forums are not a debate and typically last 90 minutes.  Candidates will give opening and closing statements (approx 2 minutes each) and will be asked to answer questions posed by participants present from written questions and given to the moderator.  The same question will be posed to each candidate. 

If your group would like the League to co-sponsor a non-partisan candidate forum or a specific ballot issue for an upcoming election, please  click here to complete the form
