The Chamber will be hosting a General Election Candidate Forum on Tuesday, October 9 at 5:30 PM at Olympic Middle School. These forums serve as a primary source for gathering information from the candidates and forming finalized decisions and opinions come election day. Candidates will be asked prepared questions and also field questions from his/her opponent giving you insight to their campaign and platform.

Elections present a great deal of responsibility to us, the voters. Whether it is a local, regional, or national election the voters must take it upon themselves to learn all they can about the candidates that will in turn help shape their community's future. 

Elections can be an exciting time for the community going forward, so here we provide a few informational pieces for you to help your decision.

Perhaps the handiest and most accessible piece of information during an election is the Voters' Guide. This publication offers background and statements from each candidate and may showcase their stance on the issues. 

iFiber One News Radio produced Candidate Conversations. These interviews, individually linked below, allowed the participating candidates to share about themselves and their respective platforms in the General Election.
