How to learn about candidates in Nov. 6 election


The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 to help the newly franchised female voters participate in the election process. Part of the League’s mission is educating voters so that you know who the candidates are, what they stand for, so you can make the best selection that’s right for you.

Ninety-eight years later, the group is still helping voters find the information they need.

Leagues across the country contacted tens of thousands of candidates and asked them questions about the important issues in your area. These candidate statements are found in voters’ guides. In addition to candidates running for office, many voters will also have ballot initiatives to decide on this November. 

On voters can see a full sample ballot in advance of what they will find at the polling place – in fact, 1.5 million voters have already used the site this year.

Leagues are finalizing their voters’ guides in advance of Election Day, so be sure to check before heading to the polls to know where candidates stand on the important issues.  Election rules differ state by state and sometimes change from year to year. 

Use the site to verify registration status, confirm poling location, and find out about ID requirements.  Confirming this information before heading to the polls saves voters time and helps voters make more informed decisions.
