This evening, speed dating meets campaigning in an event perfect for the day after Valentine's Day.

Have you ever wanted to meet a politician but not spend too much time with them? Well if that sounds like something that could appeal to you, or maybe you just have a question for someone running for office locally, this evening could be the right event for you to attend.

The Lubbock County Republican Party will host a speed-campaigning event tonight called "Candi-dating". The event will be held at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center at 6:00 p.m. There is no cost to attend and no need to RSVP. The McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center is located at 2521 17th Street.

According to the press release from Chairman Cole Shooter, voters will move from table to table asking the tough questions.

The idea is to allow the voters to chat with their political candidates. The GOP described it as groups of voters getting to move from table-to-table visiting with a different candidate at each for three minutes at a time.

Food will also be provided at the event. There was no mention flowers or chocolates. However, the Lubbock County Republicans said, “We will host a laid-back mixer, and a cash bar will be available.”

“There is no need to RSVP,” the Lubbock County Republicans said. In lieu of Valentines, “Just attend with a list of questions for the candidates that will likely represent you in the area.”

With early voting underway, will voters find that special candidate they have been looking for? Or will they continue to be undecided as they look for the right candidate to promise their vote too?

Early voting continues through February 25th for the March 1 primary.
