LWVO organizes candidate forums for local elections, often in partnership with other local organizations. 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.


For the safety of candidates and attendees, this year's forums will be virtual using the Zoom webinar platform.  The recorded forums will also be available here and on our YouTube channel.


Please submit questions for candidates in advance of each forum to lwvocandidateforums [at]
