Following the holidays, New Orleans voters may feel like the Feb. 1 elections are coming on a compressed schedule, with Election Day just three weeks from Saturday. But several civic groups are quickly mobilizing to provide residents with opportunities to hear from the candidates first-hand in the next two weeks, starting today (Tuesday, Jan. 7).

Tuesday (Jan. 7): The Independent Women’s Organization of Greater New Orleans, a Democratic organization, will hold an endorsement forum for all candidates for mayor, City Council, sheriff, and coroner starting at 6 p.m. at the ILA office building, 601 Louisiana Avenue. The forum is open to the public.

Wednesday (Jan. 8): The League of Women Voters, Urban League and WDSU will be hosting a forum for City Council candidates in each of the contested Districts A, C, D and E at 6 p.m. in Georges Auditorium at Dillard University. The forum is open to the public.

Thursday (Jan. 9): The Alliance for Good Government will hold the first of its endorsement forums at Loyola University, starting with City Council District E at 6:30 p.m., then the District C candidates, then the mayoral candidates. The exact location is yet to be announced.
