Community Candidate Forums

Linda Hanson  | Published on 9/10/2020

While our country is experiencing challenges and divisions we have never before faced as a nation, we have an opportunity to come together as a community to learn about the leaders asking for your vote in November.     

COVID-19 continues to be a barrier for citizens to safely convene and candidates to campaign, which is why key partners have combined forces to bring voters the Community Candidate Forum Series, a series of virtual forums which will serve as the sole opportunity for candidates running for local, state and federal office to publicly address their constituents and answer moderated questions alongside their respective opponents for Election 2020.


Each virtual forum will be conducted via Zoom video conferencing technology, broadcast on the radio by Woof Boom Radio on 104.1 HD1 WLBC, and live streamed on Facebook.

All community members and parties of Delaware County and Congressional District 6 are encouraged to participate in the virtual local, state, and federal candidate forums sponsored by: Bowen Center for Public Affairs, Ball State University, Citizens of Delaware County for Good Government, League of Women Voters of Muncie-Delaware County, Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Muncie Action Plan, Muncie Resists, NAACP- Muncie Branch, and Shafer Leadership Academy.

The Community Candidate Forum Series team includes representatives spanning a broad spectrum of civic-engagement organizations and perspectives and has invited every candidate from every party running for local, state, and federal office, to participate in their respective forums.

All forums will be moderated by Dr. Chip Taylor of Bowen Center for Public Affairs, who underscores that every election is important, but with the number of contested seats in local races during a presidential election year, the 2020 election has the potential to be a pivotal event for our community.“
