Making Democracy Work

WHO'S RUNNING FOR OFFICE?

LWV IS NON PARTISAN - LWV SUPPORTS OR OPPOSES NO CANDIDATE EVER, BUT LWV DOES PROVIDE INFORMATION

HOW TO RESEARCH CANDIDATES? Look for answers to these questions:
  • Who is For or Against a candidate?
  • Where does the candidate's funding come from?
  • How has the candidate voted or spoken in the past?
  • What do organizations to which I belong, or those I trust, say about this candidate?
