Where can I find candidates' answers to questions about the issues?

Two different VOTERS GUIDES

The League of Women Voters of Richardson has produced two VOTERS GUIDES for the May 11, 2013, Richardson Mayor and City Council and Richardson ISD Board of Trustees elections.


The first, a printed version, contains information about the election, voting, and candidate forums.

In addition, it contains the candidates' photographs and their answers to four questions. The candidates' responses to the questions in the printed VOTERS GUIDE meet word limits imposed by the League due to space considerations.

A printable pdf version is available here.


The second VOTERS GUIDE, an online version, contains the candidates' photographs, biographies, and answers to fifteen questions. No word limits were imposed by the League to the responses in this VOTERS GUIDE.

Each candidate's responses are contained within a printable document. To view a particular candidate's responses, click on his or her name from the list below.

Note that only one race in each of these two elections is contested.

Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Morning News has produced an online Voter Guide in which candidates answer questions from the Editorial Board. It is available on the Dallas Morning News website.

We are providing a link to this Voter Guide because it is a good source of information, presented in the candidates' own words. The League of Women Voters is not affiliated in any way with the Dallas Morning News, and we do not EVER endorse any candidate for office.
