The League of Women Voters of New Orleans has released its nonpartisan candidate information guide for the fall elections. The guide, available online at, is a free service of the League, which produces a guide for all major elections.

  This year's guide contains information about candidates for U.S. Senate, Congress (in Orleans and Jefferson parishes), lieutenant governor, Public Service Commission District 3, and all local races in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish. The information includes unedited biographies of candidates and their answers to questions posed by the League. The League also is placing informational flyers in area public libraries. — Clancy DuBos
