Dena Imlay, Voter Service Director for The League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area, is making sure that voters in Charlottesville and its surrounding counties have the opportunity to be informed about the candidates running in the upcoming November 7 election. League members are serving as moderators for most of the forums.

On September 13, Elaine Longerbeam, a League member from Fluvanna, moderated a forum for the Louisa County Board of Supervisors at Louisa High School and was assisted by other League members. She was pleased with the good turnout of about 45 people as well as the civility with which the candidates conducted themselves. Longerbeam said, “They were polite, respectful, and gracious to each other. The people there really appreciated what the League does. It was a lovely night.”
