The "CalPERS Candidates' Forum," moderated by the League of Women Voters of Sacramento County and sponsored by PERSWatch, will convene in the CalPERS Auditorium in Lincoln Plaza North, 400 P Street in Sacramento.
All eight candidates have confirmed that they'll attend, CalPERS says.
Ballots to members will go out April 21. They must be postmarked by May 19 to be included in the count that starts May 23. If no one receives a majority of the votes, the fund will conduct a runoff election between the top two candidates.
CalPERS' website has a section with more info about the candidates (listed below) and the election process.
