Candidate and Issue Forums

Scroll for Dates!

Debates or forums for candidates for state-wide office are sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Maryland (LWVMD).  Such forums must conform to its policy governing debates.  Candidate forums for other offices are the responsibility of local Leagues, which establish their own criteria.
