BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- City Club of Central Oregon and the League of Women Voters of Deschutes County have partnered to bring you a series of five candidate forums for positions on the Oregon ballot for the primary election. These online forums are free to the public.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan grassroots political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. And City Club is a non-partisan civic affairs organization that promotes active citizenship to build a stronger community.
As there may not be an option for live audience questions, we encourage you to send us questions for the candidates prior to the event. Please submit your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are important races. We hope you will join us and become an Empowered Voter!
