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. Candidates present their platforms and respond to questions from the citizens. The forums are taped and broadcast on the local government access channel. Receptions for candidates to meet the public are held prior to primary elections.

VOTER GUIDES
Prior to all local elections, the League publishes a Voters’ Guide about candidates, their biographical information and platforms. Candidates are invited to respond to several questions on local issues and provide their qualifications. Voters’ Guides are published in the Dare County newspapers.

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.

CODE OF ELECTION ETHICS PLEDGE

I WILL neither engage in, permit, or condone defamatory attacks upon the character of my opponent(s); nor shall I engage in invasions of personal privacy unrelated to campaign issues.
