2010 Gubernatorial Candidate Conversation hosted by the Citizens League, the LEAD Project, and Bring Me The News
It's that time of year again; when the air grows crisp, yellow buses truck schoolchildren between home and class, and when it's time to register and educate voters before the Tuesday after the first Monday of November in even-numbered years (also referred to as Election Day). Numerous election resources exist, ranging from the League of Women Voters' voter guides to the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance's 2010 Gubernatorial Candidate Forums at the Humphrey Institute, as well as an innovative new partnership hosting a candidate conversation that is further detailed below. Tickets for next week's events have largely been snatched up due to popular demand, but if you are interested in participating, be sure to sign up for the waiting list or to tune in via Facebook and Twitter. Either way, there are opportunities to figure out who your candidate will be when you get out the vote on November 2, 2010!
