The League of Women Voters of Pike County is holding a public forum to introduce candidates running for county office, including for commissioner, treasurer, district attorney, prothonotary, recorder of deeds, and auditor.

The meet-and-greet will be held at the league's regular membership meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the Delaware Township Municipal Building, 114 Wilson Hill Road. Local candidates and school board candidates are also welcome to attend and talk with voters, but the focus will be on the row offices.

The director of elections, Nadeen Manzoni, will demonstrate the new paper ballot voting system for those who didn't vote in the spring primary.

Candidates invited to submit information

The league invites the successful primary candidates to submit information to its free voter guide to be published online and on social media. The guide will include a list of all candidates and offices with their campaign contact information and qualifications. Forms may be downloaded from the home page at lwvpike.org. Candidates may also reach out to the league at lwvpikecounty@gmail.com.

The submission deadline is Saturday, Aug. 31.

"The information is provided strictly by the candidate, with no editing, except where length is longer than noted," said league president Liz Forrest. "The only restriction is no attacks on other candidates. Voters want to know who you are, why you are running, and what you plan to do. The Pike County Voter Guide is a free and easy way for local candidates to reach out to their voters."
