Michigan voters in both the old and new 11th Congressional District will have a chance to learn more about candidates tonight in the partial and full-term races for U.S. Congress.
A candidate forum will be held for both races at 7 p.m. tonight at the Plymouth District Library.
The race includes Dr. Syed Taj (D-Canton) and Kerry Bentivolio (R-Milford) in the full-term race representing the realigned new 11th District, and Bentivolio and David Curson (D-Belleville) will square off to fill out the rest of former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's (R-Livonia) term, which ends Jan. 2, to represent the existing 11th District.
Paula Bowman of the Northwest Wayne County chapter of the League of Women Voters said last week Bentivolio indicated he will not be attending the forum, but Taj and Curson are expected to appear.
The public is invited to attend and submit questions that will be asked by a League moderator.
For those unable to attend but have a question for the candidates, they can email a question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that never supports or opposes any candidate or political party.
