◆ 2020 Primary Election is August 18.
SVI Media is making plans for a candidate forum and primary election newspaper edition.
“We want to provide a way for candidates to get their messages out and for voters to get to know the candidates better before the primary election,” said Duke Dance of SVI Media.
The candidate forum will be a four day, Livestream broadcast event. The forum will air on SVI’s Livestream channel beginning Tuesday, August 11 and continuing through Thursday, August 14.
“We will have candidates from the different state legislative districts and the candidates for Lincoln County Commissioner on the broadcasts,” said Dance. “We are accepting questions from the public for the candidates. The questions must be submitted in advance.”
To submit questions for the candidates utilize SVI Media’s tip line: firstname.lastname@example.org; or the text-in line: (307) 203-4631. The deadline to submit candidate questions is Monday, August 10 at noon.
Primary Election Edition of the Star Valley Independent will be published on Wednesday, August 12 and will include a list of candidates, polling locations, candidacy statements, sample ballots and election information.
“The process of electing leaders is an important one,” said Dance. “We are pleased to be able to offer this service to the voters in Western Wyoming and would like to encourage everyone to be sure to vote.”
