VOTERS GUIDES for the May 6, 2017 Election

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

Printed VOTERS GUIDE

A printed version of our VOTERS GUIDE 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.

The printed VOTERS GUIDE is available as a printable pdf version here.

Online VOTERS GUIDE

A second VOTERS GUIDE with many more questions and no word limit was available online on VOTE411.org website.

Vote411.org

To the best of our knowledge, VOTE411.org does not archive VOTERS GUIDES from old elections.

Collin County printed VOTERS GUIDES

The League of Women Voters of Plano / Collin County produced printable VOTERS GUIDES covering contested races in the Plano ISD Board of Trustees (PISD) and Collin County Community College District Board of Trustees (CCCCD) elections. These two VOTERS GUIDES are now available on their website. Click on the word "Plano" to view responses from candidates for PISD, and on the words "Collin College" to view responses from candidates for CCCCD.

Richardson voters who live in Collin County voted in those two Trustee elections as well as the Richardson Mayor and City Council election and a Collin County Community College Bond Election.

League Policy

From time to time, other groups may reference our candidate forums, VOTERS GUIDEs, and/or press releases. The League of Women Voters of Richardson is not in any way affiliated with non-LWV organizations. We never support, oppose, or endorse any candidate for office.

A longstanding agreement exists among the Local Leagues in the area that:

  • The League of Women Voters of Richardson (LWV-R) is responsible for elections involving the Richardson City Council and the Richardson ISD Board of Trustees;

  • LWV-Collin is responsible for elections involving the Plano City Council, Plano ISD Board of Trustees, and Collin County Community College Board of Trustees, among others; and

  • LWV-Dallas is responsible for elections involving the Dallas City Council and Dallas ISD Board of Trustees, among others.

All three Leagues contribute to the Voters Guide questionnaires that appear on the LWV VOTE411 website.
