We are proud and pleased to host Candidate Forums for the local contested races.
We provide forums so that residents can learn about the candidates’ positions on the topics they care about.  Our forums were moderated by trained League members
who live outside the voting district and have no interest in the outcome.

The League of Women Voters is non-partisan and never supports or opposes candidates or parties.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Who We Are and What We Do

The League of Women Voters believes responsible government should be responsive to the will of the people, promote the conservation and development of natural resources in the public interest, share in the solution of economic and social problems that affect the general welfare, promote a sound economy, maintain an equitable and flexible system of taxation, and adopt domestic policies that facilitate the solution of international problems.

Voter information, education, registration, and support for voters.
Observation and study of local governmental entities. Issue-based advocacy in our community, in Illinois, and in Washington D.C.
Nonpartisan sponsorship of candidate debates and forums.
In-depth education about current issues facing voters in local, state, and national elections.
