The League of Women Voters of Door County is offering to host local candidate forums for the non-partisan spring 2023 election. From January 4th through the 20th, forum requests may be made by calling Dan Powers of the League of Women Voters of Door County at 920-743-6796. The upcoming election may include contested seats for judges, towns, villages, city, and school boards, and these forums may be requested by any candidate, non-partisan group, or individual citizen. The league, however, will only proceed if the position is contested, at least 2 of the candidates agree to participate, and, a venue and time can be agreed upon and arranged.
The goal of these candidate forums is to inform citizens and to provide candidates with a nonpartisan opportunity and equal time to respond to submitted written questions about their positions on various issues. Also, candidates never see the questions prior to the forum. Again, that deadline to request a forum is January 20th, and requests will be considered in the order in which they are received.
