PRESS RELEASE

Secretary Bennett announces statewide General Election town halls

Non-partisan forums designed to inform public on ballot propositions

PHOENIX Wondering about the 10 propositions on the Arizona ballot this fall? Got a question on one of the measures dealing with health care reform, state trust land, medical marijuana or the state budget?

Stay tuned, because the Secretary of State's Office may soon be coming to your community with its 2010 General Election Town Hall series. Secretary of State Ken Bennett has announced about two-dozen town halls across Arizona. The events are free-of-charge and open to the public as an opportunity for voters to learn about the ballot propositions and pose questions to neutral and informed staff members provided by our 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,” Secretary 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.”

The 2010 General Election Town Hall series will kick-off at 7 p.m. on Sept. 22 with a town hall in the auditorium at Gateway Community College , 108 N. 40 th St., in Phoenix. Sponsored by the Secretary of State's Office, Maricopa Community Colleges and Cox Communications, the event will be open to the public and taped for later airing on Cox Cable.

Community town halls will begin Sept. 24 and continue through Oct. 25, with forums planned all over the state in locations ranging from Phoenix and Prescott to Safford, Kingman, Wickenburg and Window Rock.

The Secretary of State's Office would appreciate any assistance the media can provide in spreading this message so that members of the community may attend and become as educated as possible about the votes they'll cast this fall. A complete schedule of this fall's General Election Town Halls is included with this media release.
