FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
League of Women Voters Candidate Forums Available
The League of Women Voters of Washington Education Fund and The Spokesman-Review are pleased to announce that voters can access critical information about candidates for lieutenant governor and secretary of state in advance of the August 4 primary.
These forums are available on the League website and through the following links:*
LWVWA President Lunell Haught reminds voters to make time to learn about the candidates and vote by August 4:
Candidate forums provide a unique look at the people who are seeking to represent you. Once in office, the lieutenant governor and the secretary of state will affect public policy in ways that play out in daily life. Who do you want to have this power? Vote for that candidate.
The top two contenders for these positions will advance to the November general election. Voters, who are now receiving their ballots and official voter guides for the primary, can also check the following sites to make sure they are ready to vote:
- VoteWA: The Washington State site for checking your voter status.
- VOTE411: The League of Women Voters candidate guide, where you can get answers put to candidates from members of their local communities.
Voters can also find a list of planned debates at lwvwa.org/Forums as well as submit questions for candidates.
Democracy depends on citizen participation, especially at the ballot box. Please vote.
