In advance of the Aug. 2, 2022, primary, the nonpartisan, nonprofit League of Women Voters of Clark County is hosting seven candidate forums – five this week and two the first Wednesday in July.

The forums will be televised live on CVTV, the government access channel, as well as be available for later viewing on the CVTV website – cvtv.org

There will be no in-person audiences for the forums but candidates will be in the same room for their events.

Candidates seeking to represent Legislative District 18 Position 2 and Clark County Council District 5 will face off in their respective forums beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., June 22.

Candidates seeking to represent Clark County Council districts 1 and 2 and serve as Clark County Sheriff will face off in their respective forums beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Thu., June 23.

Meanwhile, candidates seeking to represent Legislative District 17 and serve on the Clark Public Utilities Commission will vie in their respective forums beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Wed., July 6.

The challenge of scheduling nine candidates for a 3rd Congressional District forum event has prompted the League to conduct individual interviews with each of the hopefuls.  The interviews will be aired on CVTV as well as made available online closer to the election.

Ballots will be mailed by Clark County Elections beginning July 15.

Additional details about the forums and candidate interviews can be found on the League website at https://lwvclarkcounty.org

The top two finishers in each race will advance to the general election on Nov. 8. More information about the elections, including how to register to vote, can be found at the Clark County Elections website https://clark.wa.gov/elections

The League of Women Voters was founded by leaders of the women’s suffrage movement in 1920; for more than 100 years, the League has worked to empower voters and defend democracy.
