TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - It's down to the wire for voters to make their decision before election day on Aug. 28.

A forum to help those undecided voters will be held Friday night.

The forum will feature candidates for City Commission Seats 1, 3, and 5, as well as Leon County Commission Seat 3, and the mayoral race.

The FSU NAACP and FSU Student Government nare partnering to bring those candidates to campus.

The forum is open to all, but places a big focus on issues important to college students.

The President of FSU's NAACP, Nastassia Janvier, says young people are helping shift the world of politics.

"Change is happening and whether we're on that boat or off that boat, it's going to happen," said Janvier. "So essentially giving us a platform for us to best vocalize our opinions as best as possible is really what we're trying to get at with this candidate forum."

She also mentioned that many college students are excited because several millenials are running for office.

The forum began at 5:00 p.m. on FSU's campus.
