BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) — City Club of Central Oregon and the League of Women Voters of Deschutes County have partnered to bring Deschutes County voters a series of in-person candidate forums for positions on the General Election.
Learn more about who and what is on the 2022 ballot at the Deschutes County website. All candidates for contested positions have been invited to participate. The Deschutes County Candidate Forums aim to provide impartial discourse, educate voters about candidates’ views on issues and stimulate voter participation in the upcoming election.
The LWVDC and CCCO expect attendees at our 2022 Candidate Forums to conduct themselves with civility. Civil discourse means, at a minimum, mutually respectful, courteous, constructive and orderly communication. Those attending the event should hold all applause until the conclusion of the forum and remain quiet during the forum.
For more information on civility, visit the CCCO website for the Tools of Civility or read the Oct. LWVDC Freedom Readers book club book pick, Choosing Civility by P. M. Forni.
There is no cost or pre-registration for the forums and entrance will be granted until the room is full. The forums will be recorded for viewing and posted at least 48 hours following the event. Questions may be submitted via the events page on the LWVD, CCCO websites and at Vote411.com.***2022 Deschutes County Candidate Forum Schedule***
