You've probably heard that we're electing our next President on November 8. But what about the candidates for other offices we'll see on our ballots? Depending on where you live, you'll get the opportunity to vote on a variety of state and local candidates, a proposed amendment to Indiana's Constitution, and possibly a school funding issue. Are you ready?

With Election Day just six weeks away, now's the time to be sure you're making the most informed decisions about who gets your vote (you ARE registered to vote, right?). That starts with being sure of exactly what's on your ballot.

For a PDF image of the ballot you'll see at your polling place in November, visit monroecountyvoters.us, or just choose your voting precinct from the list below.

[EDIT (October 2016): Click the dates listed below to see CATS video of the forums.]

A forum series presented by the League of Women Voters of Bloomington & Monroe County at the Library allows you to see real live candidates for local public office throughout late September. Local government often affects our lives more than federal and state government do, so the forums are your chance to get involved by hearing what the candidates have to say and asking them questions directly.
