​The City of Bellingham is partnering with the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County to host a series of Election Forums at the City Council Chambers in City Hall, 210 Lottie Street. The forums, which are open to the public, inform voters about issues and candidates before the general election.

Youtube channel. The Bellingham Herald uses the forums to determine which candidates to endorse.

Stream the forums online, watch them on BTV10, or attend them at City Hall during the following times:

  • Tuesday, September 29, 2015, 6:30 to 8:30 pm: Port of Bellingham, Bellingham School Board, Jail Sales Tax Measure
