Candidate Statements & Pro/Con Discussions
The LWVSF is proud to partner with SFGOVTV in educating voters before each election. Together we produce Candidate Statements and Pro/Con Discussions. Candidate Statements provide voters with an opportunity to hear each candidate’s platform and understand their priorities. Pro/Con Discussions give voters an opportunity to hear the proponents and opponents arguments for the local ballot measures. Get to know your candidates and propositions at https://www.youtube.com/user/leagueofwomenvotersf.
All candidates were invited to participate in the Candidate Statements, videos are available for all candidates who participated and represent the candidate’s positions. They do not reflect the opinions of the League of Women Voters of San Francisco. LWVSF never endorses or opposes candidates.
Before each election, the League organizes Candidate Forums to educate voters regarding each candidate’s platform.
For the November election, LWVSF organized four Candidate Forums- Board of Supervisors, District 6, Board of Supervisors District 10, Community College Board, and State Assembly District 17. All forums can be viewed online. Photos from these events can also be viewed on our Facebook page.
The LWVSF’s Pro/Con Guide provides non-partisan analysis of San Francisco ballot measures. The Guide is a compilation of publicly-filed ballot arguments, news articles, interviews with various advocates, and online research; they do not represent the opinions of the League of Women Voters of San Francisco or the Voter Services Committee. The Guide is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese at http://www.lwvsf.org/pros-cons-guide/.
The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund
The LWVCEF provides valuable resources for getting informed about the state-wide ballot measures.
