ANNOUNCING LWV CANDIDATE FORUMS FOR LOCAL AND STATE RACES
As you know, the League of Women Voters has long been seen in our nation as the foremost and most esteemed organization for voter education and registration since 1928 when the League held the first Meet the Candidates national radio broadcast ever in the United States. Voters turn to our Voters Guide to inform them of the roles of their public servants and their contact information. In recent years, citizens have used our new VOTE411 technology to register to vote, find their polling sites, and learn the positions of candidates running for office at federal, state, and local levels. This election season is no different. In fact, South Carolinians have been turning to us earlier than usual this year --- since before the state’s primaries --- to get the information they need to be empowered voters.
In response to the continuing need for voters to have the most detailed information possible about upcoming local and state elections, the League of Women Voters of Hilton Head Island and the Bluffton Area and the Beaufort League have joined together to plan and present the following Candidate Forums. Please register for the confirmed Forums as indicated below. It is important that the candidates know that as many of their constituents as possible are registrants for these forums. We are counting on your participation to make these Forums meaningful for you and for the candidates.
