Residents will have the opportunity to have their questions answered about the Yuma County Board of Supervisors and sheriff candidates — before they vote.
The Yuma Sun is holding two candidate forums at Booth Machinery, 6565 E. 30th St. The events are open to the public and free of charge.
The first forum will be 6-8 p.m. Monday.

A second forum will be held 6-8 p.m. Oct. 9 for candidates in the Yuma County Board of Supervisors District 2 race, Russell McCloud and Dan Dawson, as well as the candidates for Yuma County sheriff, Leon Wilmot and Rick Sandoval.
Questions will be posed to the candidates by moderator Roxanne Molenar, Yuma Sun assignments editor. Audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions as well.
