MARQUETTE — An election and voter information forum will be held in February by the Marquette City Clerk’s Office and the Marquette Senior Center in anticipation of the upcoming presidential primary election, according to a city announcement.

The event will take place on Feb. 13 in room B of the Marquette Senior Center, which can be accessed via the Spring Street entrance to Marquette City Hall.
