Voters hear from candidates at forum

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Voters heard from more than a dozen political candidates at a forum Tuesday night hosted by the Albany Civil Rights Institute.

People running in Dougherty County Commission, Dougherty County School Board and State House races introduced themselves, talked about their platforms and answered a question.

ACRI Executive Director Frank Wilson said, "We all care about voter participation, but if you don't do voter education so that our citizens can be informed then your vote sometimes is nil because you haven't cast an intelligent vote."

Primary election day is May 20th. Early voting starts Monday.
