About the Voter Guide:  Candidates were informed, when they received our request to participate in the LWV’s survey, that their responses would not be edited for content, nor corrected for spelling or grammar. To promote readability, we asked that candidates limit their responses to each survey question to a maximum of 200 words, unless otherwise noted.  They were advised that answers would be cut off at the designated word limit when published, as we have done in some instances.

Can’t find the information you are seeking? Please check back regularly, as new candidate information and helpful content is posted several times a week.
