 The League of Women Voters is working with the Central Arkansas Library System, AAUW, and KUAR radio to hold a series of Candidate Forums, for all mayoral candidates. We have secured four branch libraries, in different neighborhoods. It is important for you to commit to these dates as soon as possible. All forums will be from 6:30-7:30

Each of the first four forums has a different topic. The fifth forum will incorporate questions from all areas and could possible center around any recent issues facing the city at that time.

We will have moderator for each forum, and will gather questions from several different civic organizations. The format will include brief opening and closing statements from each candidate, questions from the moderator, and then questions from the audience. We will have volunteers to collect the question cards and review the questions, to help the night flow more efficiently.
