Note: the League of Women Voters encourages all candidates, including those who are unopposed, to inform voters about their experience and their ideas. We carefully write questions for judicial candidates to avoid asking about how they might decide on specific cases. But we do ask general questions about their attitudes and qualifications. If you would like to know more about the unopposed candidates, please ask them to participate in the Voters’ Guide.
The following information is copied from the information that the candidates themselves submitted for VOTE411.org and for the League of Women Voters Multnomah County Voters’ Guide for the November 3, 2020 General Election.
