Meet the candidates

Voters this fall will have more than the normal number of items to consider when they go to the polls or vote from home.

Fourteen statewide initiatives or referendums are on the ballot. The governor, secretary of state, treasurer, attorney general, state board of education and University of Colorado Board of Regents are on the state ballot. U.S. House seats need to be determined. There are county candidate races, legislative house and senate contests, and local ballot issues involving taxes.

Some of the ballot questions are new issues, and many of the candidates seeking office are unfamiliar to the average voter.

Voters have numerous ways to prepare — such as by reading material published in the newspaper or left on the doorstep by candidates making neighborhood rounds.

But seeing candidates in person, hearing their messages and talking to them is an important additional method that voters should use when it is available.

In Longmont, a candidate’s forum sponsored by the Daily Times-Call will occur at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 12. The forum is at the Albert E James Auditorium at Longmont High School, 1040 Sunset. St.

Candidates from most of the races on the ballot will be present to discuss the issues and to seek voter support. Several of the issue campaigns will also be represented.

Responsible voting requires work. The Oct. 12 election forum will make some of the work easier.
