The League of Women Voters of Lincoln County hosts a virtual forum featuring the candidates seeking a position on the Lincoln County School District Board of Directors. The online event will take place this Thursday, April 22, beginning at 6 p.m.

Four candidates are seeking the Zone 3 (west area) position on the school board. They include Ron Beck (incumbent), Lance Vanderbeck, Erica Wilson and Mike Rawles. The two open seats in Zones 4 and Zone 5 are also contested. Running for the east county (Zone 4) position are Peter Vince and Stephen Vogel, while Eric Goss and Senitila McKinley are seeking to represent the south county area (Zone 5).

Jean Cowan will moderate the forum. After brief introductions, the candidates will respond to questions of local interest. Each candidate will then close with a one-minute statement. Those interested in watching the forum must pre-register by going online at in order to receive the sign-in directions.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government at all levels. Democracy is not a spectator sport, the group says, and there are many ways to participate in strengthening democracy.
