  • The League of Women Voters has a long history with candidate debates. Between 1960 and 1984, the League sponsored every presidential and vice presidential candidate debate. The League may no longer sponsor these televised debates, but state and local Leagues across the country continue to sponsor candidate debates at the state and local levels, just as they always have.

    Candidate debates are one of the only opportunities voters have to listen to candidates offer more than just a brief sound bite. Debates provide an opportunity to hear what candidates are saying and to form your own opinions of the candidates – based on your own observations. They also provide an opportunity to become engaged in the political process by using critical and analytical abilities in examining the candidates.
