All five State House candidates will participate. The Democratic candidate, running unopposed in the Aug. 26 primary, is Frank Cuccia. The four Republicans competing for two seats are Noel Campbell, Sean Englund, incumbent Karen Fann and Linda Gray. Senator Steve Pierce, running unopposed, has said he will try to attend.
Candidates will be available to chat with the public before and after the forum, and Yavapai County will be demonstrating the new touchscreen voting machines.
