The LWV can help you organize a debate/forum.
We can also provide a moderator and time keeper. There is generally a modest fee for this service.
Some useful documents:
- Checklist of things to consider and notes on working with the League.
- Ground rules - typical
- Draft format you can modify
- Candidate invitation letter template.
The ground rules, draft format, and invitation letter are in Word format, to allow modification. The letter definitely needs to be modified. The format may be used without modification if it fits your needs, or edited if it does not (in either case, remove our lead in paragraph that says you can change it!). Modify the ground rules only carefully and in close contact with the League -- most of these are based on experience and should not be lightly changed.
