PORT ANGELES — The League of Women Voters of Clallam County has announced four public forums to help voters become better informed about candidates and issues in the upcoming general election.
A forum for candidates for Position 3 on the Clallam County Fire District No. 2 Board and for Port of Port Angeles Commissioner District 3 is set for 6 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Port Angeles City Council Chambers, 321 E. Fifth St.

Candidates for Port Angeles City Council positions 5, 6 and 7 and speakers for and against the city of Port Angeles’ proposed affordable housing sales tax will participate in a forum at the Port Angeles City Council chambers at 6 p.m. Oct. 8.
Some candidates for these positions have not yet responded to the League of Women Voters’ invitation to participate in the forums, according to a press release.
The League of Women Voters encourages audience members to bring questions for the candidates and will allow candidates for other offices who are in attendance to introduce themselves.
League volunteers will record the forum and links to the videos will be available shortly afterward at the League’s website, www.lwvcla.org.
