CHAPEL HILL – Early voting begins Thursday, and we’re kicking off the week by bringing the candidates to you with two forums.

Monday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., the four candidates seeking three seats on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board will take questions from WCHL’s Aaron Keck. We’ll broadcast the forums live on 97.9 FM, 1360 AM, and

The Afternoon and Evening News will continue from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at which time the nine candidates for the Chapel Hill Town Council will be featured in our second forum.

We’ll have a full recap of both forums on the WCHL Morning News Tuesday, and you’ll be able to listen to the discussions in their entirety by visiting Chapelbor’s 2013 Election Central here.

Next week, we’ll keep the candidates coming with a forum Monday from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. featuring the five candidates for Carrboro Board of Aldermen.

Our final forum comes to you on Election Day Eve, Monday, November 4, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., when we’ll host Chapel Hill’s Mark Kleinschmidt, Hillsborough’s Tom Stevens, and Carrboro’s Lydia Lavelle–all running unopposed for mayor–for a special conversation about the future of the three towns in the next two years and beyond.
