The League of Women Voters is known for organizing Candidate Forums to give citizens the opportunity to ask questions of candidates for local, state, and national elections.  The importance of well-trained moderators for these events cannot be over-emphasized. Today, the League of Women Voters-Lake County hosted a moderator training session at Deerfield's Patty Turner Center.  They were assisted by the League of Women Voters-Deerfield Area and received the training from League of Women Voters-Illinois Moderator Trainer Missey Wilhelm.  Be sure to attend a candidate forum in your area as the primary and general elections get closer.
