LWV Hosts 2020 Primary Election Candidates’ Forum


April 14, 2020. Klamath Falls library

One of the main functions of the LWV is to promote voter participation. Voters should be educated about candidates and issues.

Educating Voters

The LWV hosts hundreds of events and programs every year to educate voters about candidates in thousands of federal, state and local races, as well as distribute millions of educational materials about state and local elections. 

Why it matters

The leaders we elect make decisions that affect our daily lives. Elections are our chance to stand up for what matters most to us and to have an impact on the issues that affect us, our communities, our families and our future. 

What we’re doing

The LWV hosts hundreds of candidate debates and forums across the country each year and provide straightforward information about candidates and ballot issues. Through print and online resources, including VOTE411.org, we equip voters with essential information about the election process in each state, including polling place hours and locations, ballot information, early or absentee voting rules, voter registration deadlines, ID requirements and more. 

Candidates’ Forum in Klamath Falls

The League of Women Voters of Klamath County will hold a Candidates’ Night at the Klamath County Public Library on Tuesday, April 14 from 6 – 9 pm.  It is co-sponsored by the Library.  We would like all voters to participate, no matter your party affiliation.

Our organization is Non-Partisan.  This is not a debate.  It is an opportunity for Klamath County voters to hear all candidates who choose to participate, and allows them to answer written questions from you, our audience.

We will invite all 13 candidates, from all parties, for the Congressional seat in District 2, as well as local candidates in contested races (currently Sheriff and County Commissioners). We hope you will come to listen and ask questions.

Vote 411. Being Better Informed

Why it matters

Election rules differ state by state, and sometimes change from year to year. Using VOTE411.org, voters can confirm their polling location, check if ID is required, and see what their personal ballot will look like.  Confirming this information before heading to the polls saves voters time and helps voters make more informed decisions. 

What we’re doing

We have long been a trusted source of objective and nonpartisan election information. Since 2006, VOTE411.org has served tens of millions of voters. By entering one’s home address on VOTE411.org, voters can see ballot questions they will be voting on, compare candidate responses to League questions and much more!
