Candidates Night to be held Feb. 27
January 10, 2012 

The upcoming 2012 primary election was the focus of League of Women of Darke County as they met at the Law Library to make plans for a candidates night before that crucial event on March 6.  

As is their usual practice, the LWV is planning to hold this Candidates Night the week before the primary, February 27 at 7 p.m. at the American Legion on Ohio Street.  The public is invited to attend and submit questions for the candidates. 

So that it can be viewed on GPAT, the LWV plans to tape the event to be shown throughout the week prior to the primary to give more voters an opportunity to become acquainted with the candidates and their positions. 

With the State’s final decision not to have two but only one primary election, this March 6 primary will be a deciding factor in several races.  Although some candidates running for county offices are uncontested, the Darke County Common Pleas Judge Probate/Juvenile Division is one of the three that is, along with Clerk of Courts and one County Commissioner‘s seat. 

The League committee is planning for uncontested candidates to introduce themselves briefly although they will not be part of a panel presentation. The LWV Candidates Night committee will also briefly outline the issues facing voters in the March 6 primary.   

The League of Women Voters of Darke County is a non-partisan organization encouraging informed and active participation in government.  For more information, log on to
