Beginning in 1971, the League of Woman Voters of Canton has provided studies and voter information for our community. For many, if not most, of these years, the League has sponsored a Candidates’ Forum in October. This Forum has always been a shining example of our League’s commitment to non-partisan voter education. We have been recognized locally for this effort, as well as State-wide.
The year 2020 has found us in a pandemic situation. After many thoughtful discussions, and feedback from candidates, we decided not to host a Forum this year We want to hold true to our integrity, and felt that the challenges a virtual format presented, such as the ability to edit a recorded session, were not something we could control.
It is our hope and desire that all candidates participate in our Voters Guide, which will be distributed widely. It is also our hope that we will be able to return to a live Forum in the year to come.
