Glen Ellyn League of Women Voters to host candidate forums

The League of Women Voters of Glen Ellyn will host a series of live virtual candidate forums over three consecutive Saturday mornings in March.

Forums will feature candidates for Glen Ellyn village president and trustee, Milton Township supervisor and Districts 41, 87 and 89 school boards. The election for these positions will be held April 6.

To register to attend any of these candidate forums, voters should visit the Glen Ellyn League of Women Voters’ website at lwvge.org.

The schedule for the forums is:

• March 6 - 9 a.m. Glen Ellyn village president; 10 a.m. District 41 school board

• March 13 - 9 a.m., Glen Ellyn village trustee; 10 a.m., District 89 school board

• March 20 - 9 a.m. Milton Township supervisor; 10 a.m., District 87 school board

The goal of the nonpartisan candidate forums is to offer residents the chance to hear the candidates positions and become more knowledgeable about the issues facing the community.

The League of Women Voters has long hosted nonpartisan candidate forums given the organization’s mission of promoting voter education and access. In the past, these forums were held in person, but given COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, all league forums are being held in a virtual environment.

All candidates on the ballot for these offices have been invited to participate in the forums. The candidates will answer questions at this virtual forum that are submitted by the public. Live Zoom webinar capacity is limited but the event will be recorded and available for later viewing. To register and submit a question for consideration, visit lwvge.org.

The forums are moderated by Barbara Yong, a trained league moderator who is a member of the LaGrange League of Women Voters.
