For more information about third party candidates please refer to the League of Women Voter's guides or the Green, Libertarian and Constitution Party websites. All candidate positions are taken from either their official campaign websites or their responses to the questions posed by the League of Women Voters. The LWV is a nonpartisan organization with the goal of ensuring that each voter casts an informed vote.
