Candidate forums featuring those running for election in Batavia, St. Charles and Geneva are set for the first week in April, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Central Kane County.

The Batavia candidates will appear at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, at the Batavia Public Library, 10 S. Batavia Ave., Batavia. Candidates for the Batavia School Board have been invited.

The St. Charles candidates will appear at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, at the Kane County Brach Court at the Circuit Clerk office, 530 S. Randall Road, St. Charles. Candidates for the St. Charles School Board and the St. Charles mayoral race have been invited. The forum will be divided into two parts, the first of which will feature candidates for school board, followed by the candidates for mayor.

The Geneva candidates will appear at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at the Kane County Brach Court at the Circuit Clerk office, 530 S. Randall Road, St. Charles. Candidates for the Geneva School Board and for the Geneva mayoral race have been invited to participate. The forum will be divided into two parts, the first of which will feature candidates for school board, followed by the candidates for mayor.

In a news release, the league said the events will help it reach a primary goal – "to encourage educated and active participation of citizens in government."

"The league is a nonpartisan organization that never endorses candidates for any office," the release stated. "Our forums offer an opportunity for citizens to hear candidate opinions in an unbiased and civil setting. It is our hope that our audience will gain knowledge and understanding of candidate capabilities and viewpoints, so that they are better informed voters at the polls."
