The Judicial Candidate Forums were created to disseminate information about judicial candidates as widely as possible in their communities and to encourage the active participation of Oakland County citizens in becoming informed voters and voting in judicial elections. Offered in conjunction with the League of Women Voters - Oakland Area and the Detroit Free Press, the forums serve to educate the voting public about the relevant issues and the judge's views.
This year we will be hosting five forums. There will be forums for the 51st District Court in Waterford (July 12) and the 46th District Court in Southfield (July 18) before the primary election on August 2. There will be forums for the 52-1 District Court in Novi (September 12), the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court and the Oakland County Probate Court (September 20) before the general election on November 8.
