Published: October 2, 2016 12:00 AM

The Leagues of Women Voters of the Akron Area, Hudson, and Tallmadge will jointly present a Candidates Forum for Summit County residents that covers open positions on the ballot for the Nov. 8 General Election.

This event is co-sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at The University of Akron.

The evening will feature three parts: first the opportunity to meet the eight judicial candidates in an informal small group setting; the second will be a similar format for the 15 Summit County Council candidates; and finally a traditional panel session with the candidates for the Executive Offices. Before the panel, the state representative (34th, 35th, 36th, 38th districts) and state senator (28th district) candidates will speak for 3 minutes each.

The Executive Offices that will be on the ballot include: County-at-large Candidates (4), Candidates for County Engineer (unopposed), Sheriff (unopposed), Prosecutor (2) and Clerks of Courts (2), Fiscal Officer (2), and County Executive (2).

The event is Oct. 6 from 6:30 to 9 p.m., free and open to the public, at Cuyahoga Falls High School, 2300 Fourth St., with parking close to the entrance off of Stow Street. Email lwvaa@lwvaa.org with any questions. The League, a non-partisan national grassroots organization, is committed to providing complete and impartial information to voters.
