The local League of Women Voters has published a voter guide designed to help voters learn more about the contested Rutherford County general elections this August.

The guide presents all candidates in each particular election and zone, where applicable, in a side-by-side format. All information was provided by the candidates.

The complete guide, in pdf format, includes links to election resources as well as candidates' websites and social media pages.

The guide is also available in an online gallery suitable for saving or sharing specific pages of interest.

Access both versions of guide on the League's website,

Earlier this month, the League hosted a candidate forum for Murfreesboro City Council, the only contested Murfreesboro race. Four candidates are vying for three seats. Watch the candidate forum for that election on Murfreesboro’s CityTV YouTube channel.
