This effort continues a legacy of providing opportunities to educate their members and guests on who is running for office and ballot issues. Rotary and The Chamber's members are engaged citizens, small business owners, nonprofit directors and community leaders committed to Jackson Hole's well-being. From housing and transportation to healthcare and education, our members know our leaders' impacts on our valley and state.

"We are honored to co-host these meetings with our friends at Rotary and are excited to bring these back to in-person events this year," says JH Chamber of Commerce CEO Anna Olson. "Our members are engaged, and we strive to create campaign season events that will inform their vote and provide hopeful candidates with insights from voters too."

"Being informed on issues and candidates is essential to voting, and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with the JH Chamber of Commerce," says JH Rotary Lunch Club President Jessica Jaubert. "We hope to provide folks with opportunities to meet candidates, ask questions and engage in this important process – having your voice heard through your vote."

This year Election forums will take place over a series of seven meetings and will cost $25 per entry. The first two meetings will cover primary election candidates in July. The first of these will take place July 19th and will cover candidates for Secretary of State and Superintendent of Public Instruction.
