The League of Women Voters of Metro St. Louis believes one of the best ways for voters to learn about people seeking election is to hear candidates speak and answer questions in a public forum. 









Go to VOTER SERVICES to request a forum for an election in 2024. 








To keep forums informative for voters, the League has established candidate forum ground rules.  The LWVSTL moderator determines which questions will be asked and attempts in good faith to cover areas of interest expressed by the audience.
