In Virginia there is an election every year. Fairfax County Council PTA partners with the League of Women Voters and other nonpartisan organizations to hold forums where citizens can learn more about candidates.
Three forums will be held this fall for Congressional candidates in the 8th, 10th and 11th Districts of Virginia. Forums also provide opportunities for student volunteering and service hours.
From the League of Women Voters: With great regret, we have had to cancel the 10th Congressional District Candidates Forum. While Senator Jennifer Wexton has accepted, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock did not respond to our invitation. Therefore, in accordance with the non partisan policy of The League of Women Voters, wherein we neither support nor oppose any candidates for office or any political parties, we are unable to host an event with only one candidate in attendance.
Our co-host for the 10th District Congressional Forum, the Sully District Council of Citizens Associations, concurs; it has the same policy.
