Description of Meet the Candidates Forums
All programs begin with a ½ hour reception, at which the public can meet the candidates.
When the program starts, the moderator gives each candidate a brief period (usually one minute) to provide information about her/himself and the issue. (Volunteer timers track the time.)
After the candidates’ statements, the floor is opened to questions. Questions are provided in writing to the moderator, who addresses them to the candidates. (The moderator with the help of pre screening by a volunteer, screens out personal attacks and addresses each question all candidates.)
The order of answering the questions is rotated so that each candidate has the opportunity to answer first and each candidate answers last.
Time limits for the candidates’ presentations and answers are determined by the Consortium Steering Committee prior to the start of each forum. Every candidate is given the same amount of time to make his/her statement and to answer questions.
Volunteers are needed at each site to help with set up and to help with the candidates, to help screen questions, to collect questions from the audience and other tasks which the site director will assign. Volunteers able to assist prior to the event can help make certain candidates know where and when to go to programs or help call schools to make certain seniors and their teachers are alerted to nearby programs or help the site coordinator in what ever manner he or she directs.
Races and/or issues to be presented at each session subject to change. Check the Web site frequently for updated information.Free to the entire community!
