It’s election season again. And, we’re here to help. The League of Women Voters, a 95-year-old premier nonpartisan organization, can help you with candidates and issues forums.
- help you learn how to run a forum.
- provide moderators and timekeepers.
- provide and suggest ground rules.
- invite the candidates.
- make your forum a success in a completely nonpartisan manner.
We are a volunteer organization. Voter service and education are our primary missions. And, we are dependent on contributions to do what we have been doing for almost a century.
If we provide a moderator and a timekeeper, we request an honorarium of at least $75. If we do more of the work, we would like to receive more of an honorarium. (We’ll do everything but locate the site and provide seating and microphones for $150.) However, as our mission is voter service, if you are unable to pay, or can only pay less, we’ll still help you.
Please contact us as soon as possible, so we can help you. Call or e-mail the League office, or call either of us: Lyz Kurnitz-Thurlow, 253-924-0288 or 253-759-3355.
