Candidate Information

Candidate Forums


For each San Francisco election, the League of Women Voters of San Francisco organizes and co-sponsors moderated non-partisan forums for candidates to present their views on the issues most important to voters. 

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.

The events are non-partisan, free and open to the public. For some forums, online advance registration may be required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

Candidate Statements

For each San Francisco election, we produce (in cooperation with SFGovTV) video statements by candidates for office. All candidates are offered the opportunity to make a video. 

Videos are a maximum of five minutes and offer candidates the opportunity to present their qualifications and views on important issues.
