The event begins with very brief introductions by unopposed Darke County candidates on the Primary ballot as well as opposed State and Federal Candidates or their representaties. Then the evening begins with opposed candidates for State Senate, 5th District followed by candidates for Court of Appeals, 2nd District. Candidates for Darke County Commissioner follow and the evening concludes with a review of the two State issues by League members.

Forum participants were given two minute introductory speeches. Following that, they answered questions submitted by the audience and discussed issues. They concluded with a one minute statement. Candidates involved included:

  • State Senate, 5th District (Vote for one): William D. Beagle ( R) or Joe LeMaster ( R). The successful candidate will oppose Fred Strahorn (D) in the November General Election.
  • Court of Appeals, 2nd District, term commencing Feb. 10, 2011, (vote for one): Mike Hall ( R) or George Reynolds ( R). The successful candidate has no opposition in the November General Election.
  • Darke County Commissioner: (Vote for one): Ed Huffman (R), Bob Robinson (R) or Mike Stegall (R). The successful candidate will oppose David Niley (D) in the November General Election.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization with the major purpose being to inform voters about the candidates and issues.
