The League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear announced today the cancellation of two of its upcoming candidate forums, due to inclement weather. The Brunswick County Candidate Forum at Leland Town Hall, originally scheduled for tonight, October 10, has been canceled. Additionally, The New Hanover County Candidate Forum, originally scheduled for October 2 that had been moved to October 15 has also been canceled, due to location issues and the NCGA special session triggered by Hurricane Florence.
The Brunswick County Candidate Forum at Shallote Middle School on October 17, is currently scheduled to go as planned for now.
"We are very disappointed to cancel such important events just before early voting begins in North Carolina. We urge the public to find out more about their candidates using Vote411.org, so they can make informed decisions before going to the polls to vote," said Kim Hill Gramlisch, Digital Projects Coordinator for the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear.
Additionally, the Environmental Action Team Meeting scheduled for October 11 has also been canceled.
"Due to the incoming storm, a meeting at Wrightsville Beach is not advisable. See you on November 8," said Clarice Reber, Environmental Action Team Chair.
Members of the League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear, as well as the public, are urged to look for further updates on Twitter @lwvlcf and on Facebook @lwvlcf as they become available.
