The Vote for Ohio Kids Leadership Forum is committed to remaining a nonpartisan, educational event. As such, we will adhere to the following guidelines in order to ensure nonpartisanship during the candidate discussions:

  1. Candidates will have equal time on stage to present their views.

  2. Both candidates will be asked the same questions.

  3. The discussions will cover a broad range of early childhood education and health issues.

  4. The candidates will be asked about issues, but will not be asked to pledge to or agree with specific positions of the sponsoring organizations.

  5. The facilitators will remain neutral and will not imply approval or disapproval of the candidates or their responses.
