Title: Candidate Forum for State Senate District 6 and Representative District 14
The League of Women Voters of Sussex County is hosting a public forum for candidates for State Senate District 6 and House of Representatives District 14 on Tuesday, October 23, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at the Lewes Library. Candidates for senator Ernesto Lopez (R) and David Baker (D) and candidates for representative Peter Schwartzkopf (D) and James DeMartino (R) will field questions from the audience.
Voters can find their Senate and Representative District numbers on their Delaware Polling Place Card or by entering their address on www.VOTE411.org, the League of Women Voters’ online voters’ guide. The candidates have been asked to post background information and their answers to questions on key issues on the VOTE411 website, which covers all the 2018 state-wide and county-level races in the November 6 General Elections.
Delaware state senators and representatives introduce and vote on proposed legislation, approve the annual state budget, and serve on assigned committees. State senators are elected for a four-year term, while representatives are elected for a two-year term. For more information on voting in Delaware go to VOTE 411.org, sussexlwv.org, or ivote.de.gov.
