League of Women Voters' 2018 Town Election Guide

Each year, the League of Women Voters of Sudbury compiles this voters' guide to the local elections, in conjunction with the Sudbury Town Crier, as a service to voters.

The League sent questionnaires to all town and school committee candidates whose names were provided by the Town Clerk and to candidates who declared their intention to run as write-in candidates.

The League asked candidates to answer this question: What are the first two issues you would address if elected, and how would you address them? The candidates were asked to limit their responses to 100 words, and the responses in this guide are as the candidates wrote them.

Voter Registration

Sudbury LWV members join with students who organized a walkout protesting gun violence to help students register to vote at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School March 15, 2018. Over 100 students registered or pre-registered.
