Welcome to the Candidate Forum Planning Page!
The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area will hold Candidate Forums for the House of Delegates in the fall of 2017. Please click here to view the 2017 House of Delegate Candidate Forum Schedule and Volunteer Openings. High School and other young volunteers are welcome!
In addition to the regularly scheduled House of Delegate races, there are two Special Elections this fall: the Fairfax County At-Large School Board Member position (the election will be on August 29th) and the Fairfax City open Council Member seat (the election will be September 12th).
We will post the Fairfax City Candidate Forum volunteer sheet soon.
What do Candidate Forum Coordinators do? They are responsible for the following:
- sending formal invitations and candidate agreements to candidates after certification process has begun
- following up with candidates and/or their aides
- ensuring that candidate agreements have been returned and candidates have been certified providing lists of candidates to Venue Organizers
Watch the past Candidate Forums to get a sense of them
