PHOENIX, Arizona: The election in November is about to turn the corner, and officials in Arizona are preparing those who will flock to the polls. The Arizona Secretary of State's Office will begin a 2010 General Election Town Hall series beginning September 22, 2010. According to reports, the series of town hall meetings will not be debates, but will be used as venues to inform voters on the ballot measures on the 2010 ballot.
According to Secretary Ken Bennett, "Critical issues are at stake this General Election. These town halls are a wonderful opportunity for Arizona voters to become better informed about the ballot propositions they'll be voting upon."
Other town hall meetings will be held through October 25 and will include Phoenix, Prescott, Safford, Kingman and Window Rock.
