Wondering about 2021 Spring Primary Candidate Forums?
Our League plans to host virtual candidate forums for contested spring primary races - probably to occur in March or early April. The candidates'
petitions to run for office are due to the Athens County Board of Elections on February 3rd for the May 4th primary election. Our League's Forum Committee meets on February 4th in order to plan
the forums for any contested races. Dates for the forums will be published as soon as the events are confirmed with the candidates.
We encourage any candidates for office in the May 4th primary to send your contact information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org including your email, mailing address, and telephone number so we can
communicate with you quickly after the February 3rd filing date.
