The Women for Change is hosting an open forum Thursday with seven candidates running for judge.
The event is Thursday at the Eurma Hayes Center, and begins with a voter rally followed by a forum with the Jackson County residents who are running to fill a judge vacancy in the First Judicial Circuit, plus four at-large candidates for the First Circuit judge.
Brian Roberts, Christy Solverson and Steven Bost, who are running to fill the Jackson County resident seat open in the First Judicial Circuit, will attend the open forum, as will First Circuit at-large candidates Tyler Edmods, Amanda Byassee Gott, Carey Gill and Jason Olson. An item published in Tuesday's newspaper did not include three at-large candidates who will be attending Thursday's forum.
The 5 p.m. voter registration rally will include voter registration tables, music food and door prizes. At 6 p.m., the open forum with the candidates will begin.
The Eurma Hayes Center is at 441 E. Willow St. in Carbondale.
