Nonpartisan election town hall Wednesday
Wondering about the nine propositions on the Arizona ballot this fall? Have a question about one of the measures dealing with the “Top-Two” primary initiative, a permanent sales tax increase or state sovereignty?
Those issues will be explained at a 2012 General Election Ballot Town Hall held Wednesday in Yuma. The nonpartisan forum will take place 6:30 p.m. at the Board of Supervisors Auditorium, 198 S. Main St.
The Arizona Secretary of State's Office is hosting the free town hall as part of a statewide series. The event will be open to the public as an opportunity to learn about the ballot propositions and pose questions to neutral and informed staff members of Secretary of State Ken Bennett's office.
Audience members also will hear from supporters and opponents of the ballot measures, with both sides given the opportunity to make brief statements and take questions from the crowd.
“Critical issues are at stake this general election,” Bennett said. “These town halls are a wonderful opportunity for Arizona voters to become better informed about the ballot propositions they'll be voting upon.”
For directions to the Board of Supervisors Auditorium, call Desarae Doten at 373-1010.
