Cancellation of the 10th District Candidate Forum
With great regret, we have had to cancel the 10th Congressional District Candidates Forum. While Senator Jennifer Wexton has accepted, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock did not respond to our invitation. Therefore, in accordance with the non partisan policy of The League of Women Voters, wherein we neither support nor oppose any candidates for office or any political parties, we are unable to host an event with only one candidate in attendance.

What We Do
Action & Advocacy
We take action on an issue or advocate for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.
We make voting easier by preparing and distributing useful publications. Publications are made available to the public in our libraries, community centers and many other sites. Check out VOTE411 our easy to use online 1-stop shop voters' guide.
We organize Candidate Forums prior to elections to give voters opportunities to learn more about the candidates. We also organize issue forums to dive into complex issues like redistricting and voting rights for fact-based discussions and be better informed citizens in our democracy.
