Can't make it to the forum? Not to worry, we'll be streaming the event live on the QT website. Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss out!

We'll be using our new live polling system to show who Ipswich is voting for throughout the forums. You can show your support for your preferred candidate and even change your vote throughout the night. Find out how.

If you're unsure who is in the running, you can find the full list of candidates here.

In case you missed it, one candidate dropped out of the mayoral race on Monday and will instead be running in Division 4. Read more here.

Hope to see you at the forums!

Shannon Newley, QT Editor.
