ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA) — Several candidates for upcoming house and senate elections took to the podium Thursday in a forum at the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce.
Those in attendance could hear from both incumbents and challengers for Senate District 3, as well as House districts 96, 93 and 94.
While there were plenty of voters ready to listen, some say there was a noticeable absence of young people in the crowd.
“I wish the younger people would get more interested. They’ve had to vote since they were 18 but its unfortunate that a small percentage of those people turn out,” said Pat Moran, a Rogers resident.
There are many more candidate forums for you to attend before the upcoming election.
