Printed Voter Guides

League volunteers work very hard to create an on-line voter guide for every election. For General Elections volunteers take an extra step and work with the Mining Journal to create a printed voter guide. The volunteers work with our local County Clerk to determine the candidates and the proposals for each election. The volunteers develop questions for the candidates and get in touch with all of the candidates so that they have the opportunity to submit their answers for the public to read.

Prior to General Elections, Marquette County residents can often find a voter guide tucked into their Mining Journal paper or at their local libraries and other establishments.

Candidate Forums

Candidate Forums are an important part of the League’s work. The League regularly sponsors forums to offer the public the opportunity to become acquainted with candidates and their views to promote an informed vote on election day. The format for the forums have been designed by the League in order to give each candidate an equal opportunity to respond to the questions and share their views in an opening and closing statement.
