The Democratic candidates will face off in the Tuesday, Aug. 6 primary election. The person who receives the most votes will advance to the Tuesday, Nov. 5 general election to face Republican Mike Warner.

The forum is set for 1:30 p.m. Saturday, June 15 in the auditorium of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
