League of Women Voters Seeking Candidates for Forum

The League of Women Voters of Door County urges any citizen or candidate interested in a candidate forum to contact Barb Graul at [email protected] or 920.743.6842 on or before Friday, Jan. 18. Any candidate, group or individual may request a forum. However, the League will proceed only if the position is contested (i.e., more than one candidate is running for that seat) and at least two of the candidates agree to participate. It has long been the policy of the Door County League of Women Voters to conduct one candidate forum per race. If there is a primary, the forum would be held before the primary election. If there is not a primary, the forum would be held during the general-election season. Requests will be honored in the order in which they are received. The goal of League of Women Voters sponsored candidate forums is to inform citizens about candidates and their stands on issues. As an organization, the League does not support or oppose political parties or candidates for public office. LWV Candidate Forums are conducted in such a manner that each candidate has an equal opportunity to inform the electorate and state his/her positions.
