ABOUT LEAGUE FORUMS
Throughout the United States, as well as in Chaffee County, the League of Women Voters has earned a reputation for running fair and impartial forums. We do not favor a political party or candidate over the other and we strive to have both pro and con speakers for issues. We ask participants to abide by strict forum rules and we train moderators to conduct the forums appropriately.
The League usually holds forums for both spring and fall elections. There are two types:
- Candidate Forums are held only if there is more than one candidate for an elected position.
- Issue Forums may be are held when there are one or more ballot measures to be voted on.
The following pages display video recordings of the forums.
