VOTE411, the League of Women Voters voter information website, has information on all the races that will appear on your primary ballot. Just go to www.vote411.org and enter your address. You will see all the offices – federal, state, county and town – and the candidates running for each. The majority of candidates have provided responses to the questions posed to them by the League.

Candidate Forums are a League tradition. This year, with candidates unable to meet with voters in-person, they are more important than ever in helping voters cast an informed vote. We are co-hosting the following forums:
Co-sponsored with WROC-TV8 and the Rochester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority:

With the 19th Ward Community Association

  • Monday, June 8 at 7pm - 61st Senate District Democratic primary with candidates Jacqualine Berger and Kim Smith. Joan Seamans is unable to participate due to family responsibilities. The forum will be a Zoom webinar with registration required and a limited number of attendees. Register at https://tinyurl.com/lwv19wca61. A link to the recording will be posted on our website.
  • 137th Assembly District Democratic primary forum was canceled because although Demon Meeks accepted the invitation, the other three candidates did not reply.
  • 61st Senate District Independence primary was canceled because neither candidate replied.

With the Rochester Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority:

  • Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm - 36th Assembly District Democratic primary with Sarah Clark and Justin Wilcox. Nelson Lopatin declined the invitation. The forum will be a Zoom webinar with registration required and a limited number of attendees. Register at https://tinyurl.com/lwvdelta136. A link to the recording will be posted on our website.

Not sponsored by the League, WROC-TV8 and WIVB (Buffalo) will be hosting a debate for candidates in the Special Election for the 27th C.D.  live on Tuesday, June 9 at 7 pm and posted on www.rochesterfirst.com.
