Voters' Fair Helps Educate

With only 45 days until the November election, local candidates are in crunch time, trying to grab support and votes.

This afternoon nearly a dozen local candidates and representatives met with voters at Hanley Farm in Central Point.

The gathering allowed voters to ask the candidates questions and feel more comfortable talking with them.

"I wanted to educate myself about local politics. Because really, local politics is where it all starts. The federal government isn't going to help with Medford, Oregon. We have to figure that out," said Maurelle Wyeth, a Jackson County voter.

The event was hosted by the League of Women Voters, a non-partisan group aimed at providing information about each candidate and issues on the ballot.

The group will host at least four more open discussion events before the November election at the Medford library.
