Candidate Forums

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce holds Candidate Forums prior to Primary and General Elections.  The purpose of the event is to educate voters about the candidates and their stands on issues of importance to the business community. The Chamber does not endorse candidates.

Protocol includes: campaign buttons are permitted; however, no signage, campaign materials or mascots will be allowed. Tables will not be provided for the candidates to display their materials. Please refrain from putting campaign signs at the event.

Candidate Forums are sponsored by the Salisbury Post, Catawba College, WSAT; and, the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce.

The forums are free and open to the public; however, seating is limited. If you are unable to attend the event, you may watch it on Channel 16 (it will be broadcast several times prior to Election Day).
