These events will follow a face2face candidate forum format. Community members will be seated at tables while candidates will be rotated to present their message and answer voter questions. This will allow for all candidates present to participate fully in meeting and engaging with their constituents. Candidates will also have time to say brief remarks to all who are present.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. LWV-Northern Portage County covers the communities of Aurora, Mantua, Hiram, Garrettsville, Nelson and Freedom.
