An election forum for all Scott County candidates will be 7 p.m. Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn, 959 Middle Road, Bettendorf. It is sponsored by the Bettendorf Business Network.

All local, state and federal candidates are welcome to participate in the forum. Space will be allocated for candidates to offer election-related information to the public. Only candidates on the election ballot will be allowed to address the assembly.

Voters will have the opportunity to question candidates about campaign issues. The Scott County Auditor's Office will be present to register voters and receive applications for absentee ballots.

Jon Alexander, Quad-City Times editorial page editor, will moderate the discussion.
