This year there are three state ballot questions, and two local ballot questions. If you still don’t know what the ballot questions are about, or don’t have the facts you need to vote, we can help.
On Thursday, October 18, 2018, we heard from presenters on both sides of the issues for state ballot Question 1 regarding patient-to-nurse limits and the Newton ballot questions regarding the dispensation of marijuana. Attendees had an opportunity to ask presenters from each side questions at the end of each presentation.
Thanks to our speakers, Representatives Denise Garlick and Kevin Whitney on Question 1, and Karen Sherman and Jane Frantz on the Marijuana Questions.
