Kentucky’s primary election is now on June 23rd, and half of Louisville’s Metro Council seats — the even-numbered ones, this time — will be up for election (though not all of them have contested primaries).

As part of WFPL News’ voter guide, we’re holding virtual candidate forums for many of the contested Metro Council races, moderated by WFPL City Reporter Amina Elahi. Join us live for the conversations on Facebook, and submit your questions for the candidates ahead of time here. And check out our comprehensive voter guide for all of the local primary elections in early June.
