On May 8 Wood County voters will face a large ballot at their polling places. There will be many candidates running in city, county, state and national races. In some cases voters will need to choose among several candidates for an office in this primary election.
The League of Women Voters, together with The Parkersburg News and Sentinel, is publishing a nonpartisan Voters' Guide, to help voters learn more about the many candidates. The Voters' Guide will appear in The Parkersburg News and Sentinel on Tuesday, April 24. Early voting starts the following day.
The League of Women Voters is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that does not support any political candidate. The League is committed to providing nonpartisan, fact-based information about candidates and issues to help voters make their own decisions.
Learn about the candidates and make your choices before going to your polling place. Wood County and all of America needs good candidates to advance forward to the fall general election.
