At 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, the Elmhurst League of Women Voters will host a candidate forum for candidates running for DuPage County Board in Districts 1 and 2 at Community Bank of Elmhurst, 330 W. Butterfield Road.
The candidates will present their views on a variety of county issues, including stormwater management, consolidation of services and the status of the DuPage Airport Authority. Written questions from the audience also will be put to the candidates by the League of Women Voters moderator.
The League will also provide information on the various referenda on the ballot. Illinois voters will be asked to consider an amendment to the state Constitution regarding public pensions. Locally, voters will be asked to consider whether elected officials should be allowed to hold more than one elected position at a time.
League of Women Voters of Elmhurst is a nonpartisan political organization that neither supports nor opposes political parties or candidates for political office. All candidates running in these races have been invited to participate in the forum.
After the event, recording of the forum and a Voters Guide will be posted on the LWV Elmhurst website at www.lwvelmhurst.org.
