2018 Candidate Forums

The three LWV Candidates' Forums have started airing on the GTV channel (Verizon 44/Comcast 99) and will air every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday until election day, November 6. The forums will air back to back to back starting at noon, and we will rotate the order of the forum that airs first (So, one day the 9/27 forum will air at noon, the next time it will be the 9/26, etc.).

More convenient if you are looking at a particular Howard County race is the LWVHC YouTube Channel. There, the Forums have been broken up into smaller sections, so you don't have to commit to a big block of time, or watch candidates for whom you've already made a selection. You can also watch interviews with candidates. (If you haven't subscribed on our YouTube Home page, now is the time!)

You can also view the entire September 26 and September 27 Forums at these sites:
