What you Should Know About Candidate Forums
Candidate Forums provide electors the opportunity to hear from the candidates and to discuss with the candidates their various election platforms in a structured environment.
Depending on the local authority (municipal or school division) these forums may be organized by the municipality or school division or they may be organized by other organizations, associations and service clubs.
These forums provide each candidate a specific period of time in which to speak. After each candidate has spoken, there may be a brief break, followed by a question period for verbal and or written questions. Determining the length of the question period prior to the forum is a very helpful tip.
