League of Women Voters to hold candidate forums


As election season gears up, the local League of Women Voters chapter has scheduled a series of events to educate the voter base for the November 7 ballot.

The League of Women Voters (LWV) of Bellingham-Whatcom County will hold a county executive forum for county council candidates on Tuesday, October 3, 7-8:30 p.m., with appearances from candidates running for districts 4 and 5 as well as an at-large position. They will also hold a forum on the new jail proposition and the Whatcom County sheriff race 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, October 4.

On October 12, LWV will hold a forum over Zoom featuring Blaine City Council and Blaine school district board candidates. That will be held online-only from 6 to 8:40 p.m. If the public has any questions or concerns they would like the LWV moderators to consider, they can submit them to bit.ly/3PpcKin.

More information on upcoming elections and LWV’s continuing forum schedule, as well as virtual forum links, can be found at lwvbellinghamwhatcom.org/election-forums.
