Four candidates are vying for two seats. Tune in Thursday to watch the YouTube footage.

Tonight the League of Women Voters is hosting a forum for town and mayoral candidates. A panel of journalists from the News&Guide, Planet JH Weekly and KHOL will ask questions, some of which were submitted in advance by citizens. Audience members also will participate.

The forum is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the commons at Jackson Hole Middle School. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.

This will be the *final* public event for the town candidates (county forum is tomorrow night), following on the heels of yesterday’s debate organized by the Rotary Club and Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce.

These forums play a critical role in allowing citizens to cut through the slogans, sound bites and cacophony of ads and yard signs.

For those who cannot make the event, we are attempting to set up a live stream. At the very least, the forum will be recorded and posted to YouTube tomorrow. Stay tuned for more details.

Really, the best way is to turn out in person, get involved and get informed.

    The stream tonight will be of medium quality. Better video in a.m.

    Doh! There were a few technical issues, and I apologize. But refreshing the page might have helped. Regardless, we’ve got great quality video to post here tomorrow.

    And from what I gather, the technical issues got ironed out by the time the mayoral candidates took the stage, so I hope those viewers enjoyed it.

    Also, KHOL will be airing its broadcast of the forum at 4 p.m. Thursday at 89.1 FM.
