DETROIT -

Twelve community voter education forums will be held at six locations across Detroit on Saturday, October 13 to inform voters about the details of statewide proposals on the November 6 ballot.

The first forum at each location will be from 10 a.m. until noon. 

The second forum at each location will be from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.  

Each voter education forum will feature a program that includes someone explaining the details of this year’s ballot; along with representatives from each of the six statewide ballot proposals to explain the language and answer questions—all sides have been invited to be represented. 

"Our primary goal of the forums is to educate voters about the proposals that will appear on the ballot so they can make the decision they feel is best for their families and their community when they step into that voting booth on November 6th," said Erica Hill, coordinator for Victory Detroit 2012, the organizers of the forums.    

Everyone is welcome to attend any of the voter education forums, but organizers suggest attending the forum nearest your home or place of employment.
