The League of Women Voters is hosting the event.
The forum will have a moderator, and the bulk of the questions come from the League of Women Voters and be given to candidates ahead of time. It is not a debate.
Audience members will be able to offer moderations questions, which will be screened to avoid repetition and ensure they are appropriate.
Audience members will not be allowed to take pictures or videotape the event.
The forum will be aired live by the South Washington County Telecommunications Commission on cable channel 18 and replayed at later dates.
