The 2018 Mid-terms are turning out to be extremely important.
Anticipating the 2018 midterm elections, where we'll all be asked to pick a candidate, LWVWA has updated the How to Pick a Candidate guide.
In addition to the usual activities the League engages in, there will be a major focus on getting out the vote (GOTV). Several new, innovative activities will be undertaken before the November 2018 General Election. The Voter Info page of the LWVTC website will be the primary source of information about all that will be happening. General Elections Forums will be held on September 29. They will betaped by Thurston Community Media and then viewable TCM and YouTube.
Check back often.
LWVTC, due to the lack of availablity of candidates running in contested races, will not be holding Forums prior to the Primary Election. However, we will be involved in, and urging our members and others, to attend a Congressional District #10 Forum and Straw Poll being presented by Counted. Counted is a new organization which promotes nonpartisan, evidence-based voting reform, especially score and approval voting, across Washington state. Click the Candidate Forum button at the top of this page for details of the June 30, 2018 forum.
All Thurston County Primary Election races and candidates are listed on the Candidate Forums page.
The League of Women Voters publishes a Citizen'sDirectory of Elected Officials each year, called "They Represent You." This valuable resource provides a complete list of all local, state, and federalH representatives who serve the citizens of Thurston County.
