Carbon County Higher Education Center enjoys participating in the political process by hosting political forums prior to each primary and general election.

This year looks a little bit different, as the primary election forums will be available to the public digitally only. We invite you to join us live for each forum on the CCHEC Facebook page or to view it here on our website and our YouTube page following each forum.
