We are facing unprecedented challenges across our Nation and our State. And yet our election process must continue. Candidates in races up and down the ticket are finding new and creative ways to share their message and mobilize their voters.
The Monongalia County Republican Executive Committee will host a series of virtual town hall meetings simulcast on FaceBook Live and Youtube Live in a 5-night event.

The format for each of these events will be as follows:
The candidates and a moderator will participate in a Zoom teleconference that will be simulcast via FaceBook Live and Youtube Live. The moderator will welcome the panel, introduce each guest, and then allow each panelist 2-3 minutes to introduce themselves and their campaign. The moderator will then pose to the panel a series of 3-4 questions and ask for a response from each panelist. Viewers on Facebook and Youtube can pose questions to the panelists that will be submitted to the moderator.
Voters may watch and participate in the town hall from the Facebook page of the Monongalia County Republican Executive Committee or via the Committee's Youtube Channel.
To submit a question before the stream begins, viewers can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text Chairman Ethan Moore at 304-276-5050.
