YLNI the VOTE was created in 2007 as a way to inform members and the general public about candidates in upcoming elections. We believe in an informed and educated membership. YLNI the VOTE serves as an excellent way to encourage young leaders to vote. Now called Meet the Candidates Night, the event committee is responsible for opportunities for our members to meet the candidates before general elections. 2018's event was Oct. 3, 5:30p at Club Soda. You can see the video from the event here.
Meet the Candidates is a non-partisan, informational event to provide necessary information for voters to make an informed decision. Candidates are asked to provide general background information, and answer questions pertaining to their desired elected office. In the past, the committee hosts events throughout the election cycle to hear from those seeking office, including a mayoral debate, candidate forums, and a candidate meet and greet.
