The League of Women Voters promotes informed and active participation of citizens in government and produces non-partisan, comprehensive Voter Guides. The League of Women Voters does not support, oppose, or make recommendations regarding any political party or candidate. To help voters make informed choices, the League of Women Voters interviews candidates for most of the competitive races on key issues and prints their unedited responses. Summaries of proposed constitutional amendments and other ballot questions are also included in Voter Guides. Please check this website in early October 2018 for the Voter Guide to the 2018 General Election.
