E arly readers, please join us from 7 :15 a.m . to 8:30 a.m. today at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta Gorda for our election-year Candidates’ Forum. Candidates will have a table for campaign material, and you will have the opportunity to meet them face-to-face and ask questions. Our Government Affairs Committee has sent the candidates questions, and their responses will be available at the forum and online. The event is open to the public, and we hope everyone will attend and get to know the candidates.
As you’ve seen by the signs, campaign season is in full swing. The primary election is Aug. 26 (with early voting starting Aug. 16), and the general election is Nov 4. The “Book Closing” dates, or the last day to register to vote or change your party affiliation for the upcoming election, are: primary election, July 28; and general election, Oct. 6.
