The forum questions will be submitted by the audience, by the candidates themselves, and by the co-sponsors. The questions will be written on small index cards and placed in boxes. There are two boxes: one for state office questions and one for Town Council questions. These questions will be screened by the LWVRI to assure that all are concisely stated, non-redundant, and issue-oriented. The Moderator will choose the questions to ask.
