Topic
Ballot Questions and a Study of the Effectiveness of the 2018 Voters’ Guide.

 

At the end of the 2020 General Election ballot, voters will be asked to answer six questions. Two questions deal with state issues: the state budget process and whether gambling should be extended to include sports and events wagering. Four questions come from Montgomery County: two about how property taxes are determined and two about the composition of the Montgomery County Council. Members of the MDW committee will shed some light on the text of the questions and pose arguments for and against the issues in the questions.

A report on the study that was done about the effectiveness of the 2018 Voters’Guide will also be discussed. The report is posted here.

Discussion Group participation is free. Bring a friend.
