Women’s Studies and the Women’s Center are hosting a Meet the Candidates event and voter registration drive from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, in the Shawkey Room of the Memorial Student Center.
The purpose of the forum is to give students and community members the opportunity to meet the candidates who are running for governor, attorney general, house of delegates in the 16th and 17th districts, county commissioner, assessor, mayor of Huntington, Cabell County magistrate and Huntington City Council to discuss the economic, civic, commercial, cultural, industrial and educational interests of the area.
The League of Women Voters will register eligible voters and representatives from the Republican, Democrat, Mountain and Libertarian parties will sponsor tables with candidate information, party platforms and suggestions for how to get involved this election year.
The open forum will allow candidates to introduce themselves to members of the audience, and after introductions, candidates will be on hand to chat directly with students and members of the community. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Kim White at ext.6-6115.
