Hosted by Citizens Clean Elections Commission
“An Oct. 24 forum will include findings from two published reports: “Arizona’s Voter Crisis” and “Primary Elections: Primarily Forgotten.” Morrison Institute’s Joseph Garcia will be joined by Tom Collins, executive director of Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission, to discuss the voter crisis. Andrea Whitsett, director of Morrison Institute, will open the forum with a welcoming address. There will also be an open discussion on ways to improve the state’s 43rd ranking in terms of voter participation.
The public forum will be held Oct. 24, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the YWCA Southern Arizona, 525 N. Bonita Ave. (just south of West St. Mary’s Road, west of Interstate 10 and downtown Tucson). The event is free and refreshments will be served.
According to a study by Morrison Institute for Public Policy, as part of voter education/engagement project by Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission, Arizona is experiencing a voter crisis, with nearly half of the voting-eligible population failing to cast a ballot in the last general election.”
