Elizabeth Betancourt and Megan Dahle, the two candidates that will be on the ballot for the California State Assembly District 1 seat in the upcoming special election, will participate in a live forum from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City. The forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County, a nonpartisan organization.

The forum will consist of questions from representatives of four local media outlets: The Union, Yubanet, KNCO, and KVMR radio stations, followed by questions from the audience.

The candidate forum will be broadcast on NCTV, cable channel 17, as a live stream.

The special election will take place Nov. 5. Nevada County residents will receive ballots in the mail this month.

The District 1 Assembly seat became vacant after Brian Dahle was elected to represent District 1 in the California State Senate.
