These forums give voters a chance to learn more before casting their vote, and let candidates present their views on issues important to voters. Forums are nonpartisan, free, and open to the public. LWVO does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.
Advance registration is required. Zoom link will be sent to all registrants. Check out our calendar for a list of candidates for each race and contact information.
