Not a public event

The organizers of this event have chosen to keep it closed to the general public due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and will instead focus on hosting a premier livestream event. Details on accessing the livestream will be provided at a later date.

The audience will consist of only Rotary Club members and a limited number of friends and family invited by participating candidates. Each attending candidate is permitted to bring up to five (5) individuals to the event. Details will be provided soon on how these guests may access the event.

Unopposed Candidates

Unopposed candidates are invited to attend and will be permitted time during a specific window to speak to the public if they so choose, but they are not required to do so. These candidates will not be provided questions from the moderator.

Question Selection

Opposing candidates will be given the opportunity to answer five (5) questions during their time on stage. Each candidate will receive an equal amount of time to provide an answer to each question. Three (3) questions will be asked from a pool provided by a committee, and two questions will be selected by the committee from those submitted by the general public. More information may be found in the “Questions” section of the Rules.

Questions may be submitted via this Google Form . Please assist us by sharing this link. 

Candidates are permitted to submit questions themselves, and they may invite supporters to submit questions. However, the Rotary Club of Pell City offers no guarantee that any submitted question will be included in the debate. 


The Rotary Club of Pell City is a nonpartisan service organization that does not endorse candidates for political office.
