League of Women Voters to Hold Candidate Forums in Fairfax County

League of Women Voters to Hold Candidate Forums in Fairfax County

Board of Supervisors, School Board candidates to participate in forums.

The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA) will hold candidate forums in each of Fairfax County’s nine magisterial districts for Board of Supervisors and School Board candidates in September and October in the run up to the Nov. 5, 2019 General Election. All certified candidates competing for seats on the two Boards to represent their respective districts have been invited. Several of the forums will also include Virginia State Senate and House of Delegates candidates.

In addition, the League will hold countywide a candidate forum for the three at large School Board seats and Chair of the Board of Supervisors.

The League organizes candidate forums prior to elections to give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates and to dive into complex issues like redistricting and voting rights for fact-based discussions and be better informed citizens in our democracy. The Candidate Forums are non-partisan, and the League never supports nor opposes any candidate. A moderator will ask the candidates questions generated by the audience. Following the formal session, an informal meet and greet session will allow direct audience interaction with the candidates. The forums are free and open to the public.

Additional information about the candidate forums, the 2019 General Election, League publications and other events can be found at: www.lwv-fairfax.org

Questions for the candidates can be submitted by accessing: www.surveymonkey.com/r/LWVFA2019

The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area is a non-partisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
