LWV Candidate Forums Coming Soon

Published on 6/17/2022
Have you ever wondered why there are never more than two candidates to choose from on a November ballot? It’s because only the top two vote-getters in the Primary advance to the General Election ballot. Whatcom County ballots will be mailed on July 13 for the August 2 primary election that includes important races for US Congress and the Washington State Legislature. 

To help voters gather information they can use to inform their decisions about candidates, the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County is holding their annual candidate forums via Zoom.  You can watch them on your phone, computer or other device, and they’ll be recorded for future viewing. 

We will be hosting candidates for US Congressional District 2 Representative, 42nd District Representative Positions 1 and 2, 42nd District Senator and Whatcom County District Judge Position 2.  These forums will include translation in Spanish and Punjabi.

See for Forums page on the League website for details about all the forums. 

You can also find out how to submit a question in advance, how to listen via dial-up phone, and information about re-broadcast on Cable access and local radio throughout the weeks up to Primary Election Day, August 2, 2022. 

Local races featured are those where one or more candidates will be eliminated by the Primary results. 

Cascadia Daily News, Lynden Tribune, Salish Current, The Northern Light and 102.3 KMRE community radio are media partners of the event.  The City of Bellingham’s BTV provides broadcast and recording support. For more information about these forums, please contact 

Voter Registration: Voters may update their voter registration address up through July 25th at  New registrations are also accepted at this website provided you have a WA State ID or WA State Driver License. From July 26 until 8:00 pm on election day, you can register in person at the Whatcom County Auditor’s office (County Courthouse, 311 Grand St, Bellingham).
