The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages citizens to be informed and active in government. Being nonpartisan means that the League does not support any political party or candidate. In a League forum there must be at least two candidates for the same office who agree to participate in the forum. Then the League can host a forum for that contested race.
The League looks forward to hosting these forums for the citizens of Fredericksburg, Ingram and Kerrville.
