Meet The Candidates
This is not your mother's Meet the Candidates event. The Sierra Club's political action team wants you to meet their slate of candidates for this year's election—coming up fast! In fact, ballots must be mailed by Nov. 6. The event features city council and mayoral candidates from throughout the valley—Alta, Salt Lake City, Cottonwood, Midvale and South Salt Lake. You must be 21 to participate as it takes place at Beer Bar. If you're an environmentalist—or not—you'll want to talk to these hopefuls before you mark your ballots. Beer Bar, 161 E. 200 South, 801-656-7268, Saturday, Nov. 4, 3-6 p.m., RSVP, bit.ly/2yWMgPz

Real Women Run
Half the population really needs to step up their game. Only 21 of the 104 members of the Utah Legislature are women—so guess who's making your laws? To mitigate that, Logan's first Real Women Run training event is open to candidates, campaign managers and community members. Keynote speaker is former state Rep. Ronda Rudd Menlove. You'll learn about campaign fundamentals, digital media and money in politics. Huntsman Hall, Perry Pavilion, Utah State University, 3500 Old Main Hill, 801-537-8610, Saturday, Nov. 4, 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m., $10-$25 (includes lunch), bit.ly/2xtP8ji

Million Mask March
Are you mad at, like, everybody and everything? Then the Million Mask March is for you. Utah joins the annual worldwide protest associated with the hacktivist group Anonymous and coincides with Guy Fawkes Day. You know: "Remember, remember/ The fifth of November/ The Gunpowder treason, and plot/ I know of no reason/ Why the Gunpowder treason/ Should ever be forgot!" After the march, people will gather in front of the Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building for Remember the Fifth rally where speakers will expound on "everything from local government/institutional corruption to daily actions we can take to end elitism!" Utah State Capitol, 350 S. State, Sunday, Nov. 5, noon, free, bit.ly/2yRtGZO; Federal Building, 25 E. 100 South, 5-7:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2yVlBmz

And Then This ...
The Nationwide Candlelight Vigil to Mourn the 2016 Election. Check the website for more info. Salt Lake City and County Building, 451 S. State, Wednesday, Nov. 8, 7 p.m., free, bit.ly/2zTAnIr
