Re: Community Meeting on State Ballot Measures
To the Editor:
It seems that every year voters are faced with an increasing number of ballot measures, each one more complex than the next. During this year’s Presidential election, voters are faced with eleven State of California ballot measures on complex topics such as term limits for elected California officials, taxes, the death penalty, the “Three Strikes” law and labels on our food.
I was fortunate my Sunrise Rotary Club recently sponsored a presentation on the ballot measures given by California Choices. I found the program to be highly informative and my first thought was that it would be wonderful to make this program available to the general public to provide non-partisan information to help voters in making informed voting choices.
Next 10, a San Francisco based nonprofit organization focused on education and civic involvement, partnered with several leading California Universities to create the nonpartisan California Choices, a one-stop-shop for facts on election ballot measures.
Sarah Henry, program director for Next 10, will present an interactive program on the State ballot measures on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at City Hall in the City of Napa Hall Council Chambers, 955 School Street, Napa, CA.
During this non-partisan interactive event, audience members, through the use of hand-held clickers, will make choices on how they would choose to vote on ballot measures and see the results play out in real time.
This program is suitable for both voters and those who are too young to vote. I hope you will be able to join me.
