Democracy for East Tennessee has organized an April 15 event that will allow Anderson County voters the chance to meet candidates for four county offices before the May 6 primary election.
The four contested races are for Anderson County mayor, sheriff, chancellor, and Juvenile Court judge. Other offices on the primary ballot are not contested.
The “meet the candidates” event is scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, in the Oak Ridge Civic Center’s A/B Room.
“Democracy for East Tennessee is sponsoring this event so citizens of Anderson County can become better acquainted with the candidates for four Anderson County offices before the primary election on May 6,” the organization said in a press release.
There will be a table for each candidate to display literature and campaign materials. Depending on the number of candidates participating, the event may begin with a chance for each candidate to speak for two-three minutes. Light refreshments will be provided.
Early voting begins Wednesday, April 16.
The Oak Ridge Civic Center is at 1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
