Voter turnout in Dallas is among the lowest in the country.

Only about 6.14 percent of registered voters typically make it to the polls in local elections. That means, for those who do vote, your one vote is powerful.

Make sure you know what you’re doing with that power when you head to the polls this May by attending one of these candidate forums, sponsored by the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League, in April:

District 1: Scott Griggs vs. Stephen Winn
Thursday, April 6, 6:30 p.m.
Tyler Street United Methodist Church

District 3: Casey Thomas vs. Joe Tave
Tuesday, April 11, 6:30 p.m.
Hampton-Illinois Library


District 4: Carolyn Arnold vs. Dwaine Caraway
