What are we voting for this year? Who is running? What are the ballot questions about, anyway? These are all good questions to ask yourself as we head into the last few months of the 2014 election season. The League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) can answer them all and wants to be sure you are an informed and educated voter! Join us as we head into the last two months of the election season.
LWVN and NewTV Candidates’ Debates Wed., Sept. 3
- Democratic Primary for Governor’s Council at 7 p.m.
- Special Election for Ward 3 Ward Alderman at 8 p.m.
Both debates will take place at NewTV studios, 23 Needham Street, Newton Highlands. Audience members are welcome will not be allowed in the studio during taping. Instead they are encouraged to watch the debates live in the NewTV Conference Room.
We want your questions for the candidates! Submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 617-383-4598. Please note that questions will be addressed to all candidates and should focus on issues or qualifications for office. We will use as many questions as time allows, sometimes combining similar questions, striving to cover a variety of topics. If you don’t hear a particular question you submitted, it could be combined with other similar questions.
Watch the LWVN website for info on the Governor’s Council debate with candidates in the general election in November.
