Pam Carpenter, the Alachua County supervisor of elections, confirmed the following public candidate forums for the Gainesville mayoral election runoff between incumbent Craig Lowe and former City Commissioner Ed Braddy:

  • The Democratic Black Caucus will host a candidate debate on April 8 at 6 p.m. at the County Administration Building, 12 SE First St.

The Gainesville Sun reported there is a forum hosted by the African American Accountability Alliance on Monday at 6:45 p.m. at the Alachua County Health Department, 224 SE 24th St.

“The candidate forums provide a real opportunity for citizens to understand the vision each candidate has for the city,” Carpenter said. “This will allow the voters to determine which vision most aligns with their own.”

Weekday voting polls will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday polls will open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday polls will remain open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Absentee ballots will be mailed Monday and Tuesday, Carpenter confirmed.
