We produce our videos of election forums and video voters’ guides with the help of MetroEast Community Media.  MetroEast also broadcasts LWVPDX videos on their public access TV channels. These are Comcast channel 29, Comcast HD 329, and Frontier Channel 27.

The election information in our voters’ guides is totally nonpartisan and as unbiased as we can humanly make it. However, as part of our advocacy work, we do take positions on ballot measures. We only take a position if we have carefully studied the issues involved. If you would like to see where we stand on the measures in the 2020 General Election, click here.
