League invites the public to submit questions to local candidates

 

The La Porte County League of Women Voters is offering the public an opportunity to send questions to local candidates, starting now through Sept. 10.

Candidates’ responses will be recorded by the League, starting Sept. 15; the forum will be shown at a later date on www.Vote 411.org.

Questions may be sent to either LWVForumQ’s@gmail.com or to Facebook.com/LWVofLaPorteCounty,

“In response to national politics, voter enthusiasm appears to be at an all time high. People are excitedly registering to vote, checking on their voting status and eagerly asking where or how early they can cast their ballot,” said Jo Ann Engquist, co-president of LWV of La Porte County.

“All of these actions please the League of Women Voters of La Porte County, but it also concerns us,” she said. “Yes, we want every qualified citizen to vote, but are they forgetting something? What about the local races? Do they actually know anything about the candidates running for the many La Porte County offices on this Nov. 3? Will they simply vote along party lines, or will they make a search for the best candidate?”

    REGISTER TO VOTE. CHECK TO SEE WHERE YOU VOTE. YOUR VOTE MATTERS. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ELECTION. RESEARCH THE CANDIDATE AND THE OFFICE IN WHICH HE OR SHE IS RUNNING FOR. VOTE FOR THE ONE WITH EXPERIENCE IN THAT OFFICE. ONLY A QUALIFIED PERSON WILL DO BEST FOR THAT OFFICE. PLEASE PEOPLE GET OUT AND VOTE.
