In response to national politics, voter enthusiasm appears to be at an all time high.  People are excitedly registering  to vote, checking on their voting status and eagerly asking where or how early they can cast their ballot.  All of these actions pleases the League of Women Voters Of La Porte County (LWVLC), but it also concerns us. 

Yes, we want every qualified citizen to vote, but are they forgetting something?  What about the local races?   Do they actually know anything about the candidates running for the many La Porte County offices on this November 3rd?  Will they simply vote along party lines, or will they make a search for the best candidate? 

The LWVLC will actually give our county voters the ability to send in questions for the candidates to answer and later watch the recordings of the virtual candidate forums.

Please send your questions to either

or to,  by Sept 10th. 

County candidates include those running for Auditor, Circuit Court Clerk, District 2 & 3 County Commissioner, Coroner, Council at large, Recorder, and  Treasurer

We will start recording the candidates on September 15.  The forum will later be shown on  The exact date will be announced early in October.
