Paul Rogers Room - The Ezell Center

On Wednesday, July 10, The League of Women Voters of Nashville and the College of Leadership and Public Service of Lipscomb University will host a forum for candidates running for Metro Council at Large in the August 1 elections in Davidson County. The forum will take place in the Paul Rogers Room on the first floor of the Ezell Center at Lipscomb University from 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

Each of the participating candidates will make a very brief opening statement.  This will be followed by an opportunity to meet with roundtables of audience members in a “speed dating” format. 

Additionally, the Davidson County Election Commission will be demonstrating new voting machines that will be used for the August 1 election.  These machines feature a voter-verified paper ballot.

Seating will be limited so RSVP is required. 


“We anticipate an energetic and animated evening of conversation that will give the audience a chance to learn more about the candidates and their priorities for Metro Council in the coming years,” said Debby Gould of the League of Women Voters. 

“The College of Leadership & Public Service exists to create spaces for events like these to take place. We want our local representatives to be as connected to the communities they serve as possible,” says Kells Johnson of the College of Leadership & Public Service at Lipscomb University.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that encourages citizens to become informed voters. It does not support or oppose any party or candidate. Additional information about candidates is available at

The College of Leadership & Public Service aspires to help shape and practice a different approach to leadership and public service, built on a model of civil discourse, innovation and bold action. It offers academic and community programming through the Fred D. Gray Institute for Law, Justice and Society, the Institutes for Conflict Management and Sustainable Practice, The School of Public Policy, its statewide Leadership Tennessee program and the Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership.
