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.

Candidate forums will be scheduled for the following towns, where elections will be held on November 3, 2015: Duck, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Manteo, Nags Head and Southern Shores. Candidates are listed on the Dare County Board of Elections site here: http://www.darenc.com/boe/docs/cndlist.pdf

Sample ballots are not yet available.

The time and place for the Forums will be listed here as soon as venues are determined. They will also be published in the Dare County newspapers.

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.

The League of Women Voters of Dare County is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership is open to both men and women.

All candidates running in contested elections were invited to participate in the 2010 Voters Guide.

The League does not endorse or oppose any candidate or political party.

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.

I PLEDGE to conduct an informative and issue-oriented campaign.

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.

I WILL NOT use or knowingly permit the use of any campaign material or advertisement which misrepresents, distorts or otherwise falsifies the facts regarding my opponent(s).

I ASSUME personal control and responsibility for the conduct of my campaign.

There will be Town Elections only in 2015.
Voter information and polling places will be advertised.
