CANDIDATE FORUMS
In Dare County, the League of Women Voters sponsors candidate forums prior to local elections for town, county and state officials. In odd numbered years, the League holds Voter Forums in Duck, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Manteo, Nags Head and Southern Shores prior to the November Town Council elections. In even numbered years, Voter Forums are held in various locations throughout the county prior to County Commissioner and Board of Education elections.

CODE OF ELECTION ETHICS
The League of Women Voters of North Carolina and the LWV of Dare County, as part of their “Positive Campaigns” project, urge candidates to conduct fair, issue-oriented campaigns. The League believes that negative campaign tactics have lowered voter turnout, have eroded voter confidence in candidates and in government, and have reduced the ability of elected officials to govern in an effective and cooperative manner.

The following pledge emphasizes a value-based platform stressing four principles: honesty, fairness, respect and responsibility.
