If you'd like to get to know candidates for statewide office a little better, you might try "speed dating" them.
Faith Voices of Jefferson City, the League of Women Voters and Jefferson City Area Indivisible will host a Speed Date with Candidates event Tuesday night.
In this unique way to meet candidates, many of those running for local Missouri House and Senate seats will rotate table-to-table speaking with potential voters and answering their questions. Before beginning, the candidates will give introductory remarks.
The event is 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the McClung Park outdoor pavilion, 931 McClung Park Drive. Food trucks will be on site for food and refreshments.
