The following was submitted by the League of Women Voters of Winchester:

The Town of Winchester municipal election will be held on Tuesday, March 26, with all precincts voting at Winchester High School. 

The League of Women Voters of Winchester will again sponsor candidate forums for all townwide offices where there are more candidates than open seats.  This year that includes the Select Board, School Committee, and Housing Authority.

What do you want to know? The League would like to ask everyone, adults and students, to submit your proposed debate questions to candidatequestions@lwvwinchester.org before Feb. 29 at 5 p.m.

No question is too big, too small, or too controversial. Debate questions will be composed with an eye to relevance, absence of bias, civility, and likelihood of eliciting an informative response from the candidates.

The League will again provide an online Voters Guide at its website with brief submissions from all of these candidates, as well as candidates who are running unopposed, and candidates for Town Meeting.

More information will be forthcoming about the timing and location of the 2024 forums and publication of the Voters Guide. Announcements will also be posted on the LWVW website at https://www.lwvwinchester.org.
