• The Tribune-Star will once again team up with the League of Women Voters of Vigo County to sponsor two candidate forums this fall.

The first will be Tuesday, Sept. 30, and will feature candidates for state legislature in districts that include precincts in Vigo County. The forum will be conducted from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Vigo County Public Library in downtown Terre Haute.

The second event will be Thursday, Oct. 23, and will feature candidates for commissioner and County Council in Vigo County. This forum also will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Library.

The formats for both events have yet to be determined, but more information will be available soon.

• As a reminder, Hoosier voters can participate in this year’s series of gubernatorial debates by submitting topics, issues and questions for candidate discussion.

To do so, visit the Web site of the Indiana Debate Commission ( and fill out a simple online form. You can also submit questions through the U.S. mail at Indiana Debate Commission, 3909 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis IN 46208, Attn. Indiana Governors Debate.

It would be best to submit those questions in the next week. The first debate — Tuesday, Sept. 16, at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville — will feature questions submitted by voters through these means.
