Candidate Forums and other Voter Information

Large numbers of candidates for a large number of races means the August 2nd primary will be a critical election this year.

The League sponsored a number of forums that you can watch via TVW or King County TV. They are also available online at TVW's website; scroll down to June and July.

We also held the only 7th District Congressional Candidates' Forum with all 9 candidates. Watch it here.

Finally, our voter information website, Vote411.org, has detailed information about the candidates and measures on the ballot.
