Door County's League of Women Voters organization is offering candidate forums for local races coming up in April. The LWVDC is asking either candidates or any citizen to request a forum if it is a contested seat and at least two of the candidates agree to participate. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Spring Forums will be done online and made available to the public through the LWVDC’s social media platforms. Dan Powers, the voter service forum coordinator, shares the valuable information that candidate forums offer.
The deadline for a forum request to the LWVDC is January, 20. If a primary is needed, a possible forum would be held before the February 15 primary election. Otherwise, forums will be held in March and prior to the April 5 vote. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that engages the community to promote positive solutions to public policy issues through education and advocacy.
