League of Women Voters of WestchestersThe League of Women Voters of Westchester (LWVW) continues its tradition of providing trusted information to citizens via the internet, print and public forums for the Nov. 5 election.

LWVW and the local Leagues are sponsoring impartial candidate forums and debates throughout the County.  On Wednesday, October 23, a countywide debate, cosponsored by LWVW and Pace University, between candidates for County Executive and for County Clerk will be held at Pace Graduate Center, Room 206 (Graduate Auditorium), 1 Martine Ave, White Plains (Parking at Galleria lot).
